Academic library reference continues to go through transformation, as users increasingly rely on the web for their information needs. Traditional library liaison and subject specialist roles are changing, as librarians attempt to realign services with university-wide goals, including an increased emphasis on undergraduate student success. How does your institution market, brand, and promote its reference services on the web? How are library subject liaisons and specialists presented online? In this session, we will explore what various institutions are doing to increase the visibility of their subject librarians and how they are formalizing and assessing their new and existing efforts. We will feature a panel of 3-4 presenters, as well as an active discussion and interaction with audience members.
