WKU Library Liaison Program

While establishing regular communication between library faculty and Wenzhou-Kean academic Colleges and program departments regarding services and collections, this program provides faculty and staff more opportunities to share ideas and express concerns.  In addition, it improves the Wenzhou-Kean University Library’s ability to provide services and collections that meet the curricular needs of the Colleges and academic program units, such as the Chinese Curriculum Center and the English Language Center.

Library Staff Responsibilities

  • Develop optimal communication strategies with assigned academic Colleges and program units.
  • Meet on a regular basis, at least once every academic semester, with the leadership of the assigned academic unit.
  • Attend College or Program meetings when requested.
  • Solicit library collection and subscription requests.
  • Offer opportunities for Library instruction on the library systems and digital library resources.
  • Describe opportunities for research assistance
  • Promote new services managed by the Library

Other Issues

Because the Library Liaison Program is new, additional Library staff will be designated Associate Liaison to learn both the program and how it serves the University academic community.  When the Library Liaison is not available, the Associate Liaison can attempt to communicate or provide service as a backup to the principal liaison. It should be communicated to the department that the Associate Liaisons can be contacted when no response is received from the principal liaison.

A Library web page will describe the Library Liaison Program and the current assignments. Library staff profile pages will also be launched to facilitate the implementation of the program.

For issues or situations (e.g. general library collections & services, facilities) not specific to a College or academic unit, the Library Director or Associate Director will contact the College or Program leadership as appropriate.
