Or, in my case, Personal Library Paraprofessional.
Last Spring, the Catherwood Library started a program through which all new faculty and all graduate students would be assigned a librarian or reference staff member as their contact point for all library-related questions, comments, and concerns. As a non-librarian, I was assigned only grad students, whom I dutifully emailed at the start of the semester.
I got responses from only two of them, but had solid reference interactions with both. One contacted me a few times throughout the semester with questions, indicating that she found the program helpful (at least when it came to dealing with document delivery questions).
The interesting aspect of a program like this is that it only took me a few minutes to send those initial emails, and the resulting questions took no more time than any other reference question would have. But we managed to communicate our presence and our value to two of our most important constituencies. I’m looking forward to getting a couple more grad students to contact this term.
Anyone else running similar programs in their libraries?
