  • “…analyzing the needs of customers, designing products and processes to meet those needs, and communicating the availability of these to the customer.” Dictionary of Business and Management


Why do we need to market a library?

Librarian/Faculty Partnerships

“If we wish the library to function more effectively in the college…we must direct our efforts toward the curriculum, working through faculty.”

Patricia Knapp, 1958


Some Faculty Attitudes Towards Librarians

  • Emphasis on service role

  • Professionals, not equals

  • Unaware of amount of teaching

  • Substantial involvement = ¼

    Ivey, R.T. (1994). “Teaching faculty perceptions of academic librarians at Memphis State University.” College & Research Libraries 55: 69-82.


What are your perceptions?

Understanding Faculty Culture

  • Meet them on their turf

  • Read what they read

  • Speak like they speak

  • Solve their problems

  • Reinforce your efforts


Multiple Visions
