Title: Interaction Between Departments: Strategies for Improving Interdepartmental Collaboration through Communication
Author: Lubas, Rebecca L.; Bordeianu, Sever
Subject: Libraries
Cataloging
Acquisitions
Collaboration
Abstract: Collaboration within libraries can be a challenge; with specific jobs and areas of expertise, it is easy to focus only inward. But collaborating with the staff in other departments may help librarians be more effective information providers. The University of New Mexico Libraries has tried to meet this challenge by instituting formal and informal communication mechanisms. One-time learning opportunities and groups that meet regularly were created between different departments. This chapter will describe the ways in which the University of New Mexico Libraries organized these events and groups, which methods met with the best success and participation, and advice on how to apply these suggestions in other libraries.
