Guess how many hours your architecture Academic Liaison Librarian devotes to learning and teaching Cass students? Just under 700 hours so far this year and counting….
These are just the scheduled events and do not count the other statistics for appointments, drop-ins, unscheduled enquiries from students and staff. This is what Academic Liaison Librarians do and we also keep a log of all enquiries for SCONUL and our own statistics to track how many students we support. So no, we don’t stamp books all day!
