The purpose of this study is to compare and contrast four academic liaison programs.


Areas addressed include liaison subject specialization, communication methods, duties, and program evaluation.


This paper found similarities in areas of orientation meetings, library guides, and information literacy classes. Unique concepts among the four libraries studied include physical classroom embedment, use of specialized class web pages, faculty literacy classes, and concentrated faculty information literacy assistance.


The results presented provide insight into current academic library liaison practices and the faculty‐liaison relationship.
