ACRL Webinar: Liaisons on the Front Lines

Dear DIG Colleagues, 

Please see the following announcement about the upcoming ACRL Webinar. One of the presenters, Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh is a data services librarian. 



ACRL Liaisons on the Front Lines: 

Connections & Collaborations in Higher Education (Adobe Connect Webinar)

Wednesday November 6, 2013 at 3:00-4:00 pm [Central]

Join ACRL for a virtual forum presenting the work of two ACRL Liaisons, Sarah Wenzel (MLA) and Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh (ASA). Mandy and Sarah will be discussing higher education issues facing the Modern Language Association (MLA) and the American Sociological Association (ASA). 

 The goals of the forum are:

  • Share the experiences of two active, thriving Liaisons
  • Learn about what Liaisons do within their higher education organizations
  • Discuss the issues that are on the forefront of higher education organizations. 
  • Discuss how liaisons can leverage their expertise and knowledge to address these issues to demonstrate the value of Academic Libraries
  • Participate in Q&A time with the liaisons.  



Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh is the Librarian for Sociology, Gerontology, and Data Services at Georgia State University.  In addition to having an M.L.S. degree, she has a Ph.D. in Sociology.


Sarah G. Wenzel is currently Bibliographer for Literatures of Europe & the Americas at the University of Chicago Library and the first liaison from ACRL to the MLA.  She has been working in this field since she began as a librarian in 1998, which was also when she joined ACRL and WESS. Joining LES and the MLA came later as her responsibilities for literature increased and it became more evident that librarians and faculty can and should join forces.
