Title: Librarian Housecalls: Going the Distance for Our Physician Assistant Program
Objective: This poster examines the formation and growth of a formalized liaison program with the off-campus physician assistant (PA) program. Filling traditional library roles and creating new roles in technology and education integrated the library with the PA program.
Methods: In January 2009, the PA program moved off-campus with no bus service. This move prompted a rethinking in how the library served the PA students and faculty, and a formal liaison program began. From modest beginnings, interactions with the PA program significantly increased including the number of classes embedded in the curriculum and the customized services offered. A LibGuide was created to link the PAs to appropriate library resources and the library liaison joined the PA technology committee to provide assistance in selecting appropriate resources and technology for the students and faculty. Through the PA technology committee, the librarian assisted with the installation of a media center, which required training for faculty in screencasting lectures. Aside from the traditional library roles of reference and instruction, both of which were more heavily utilized after the liaison program was formalized, new relationships were created centering on technology and identifying the library as a partner with and advocate for the PA program.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
