Collection Development Best Practices Toolkit for Research/Instruction Librarians/Subject Liaisons: Current Awareness

Engagement with your community of practice

Identifying and engaging with your community of practice in your liaison area is essential for developing and refining your level of expert knowledge in areas for which you are a liaison. Engaging with peers in your community of collections and research practice also enhances your professional profile and the profile of the Colby College Libraries. 

  • Join or develop a network of colleagues at other institutions involved in your community of practice.
  • Identify the ACRL sections, interest groups and listservs pertinent to your liaison area
  • Identify and participate in specialized library associations or academic research organizations to gain in-depth knowledge about practices related to collections in your areas.
  • Share your knowledge with library and faculty colleagues.
