At the University of Southern Mississippi, and across the country in Academic Libraries, the mantra for Public Services Librarians is to develop relationships with your assigned faculty members and to work with them collaboratively. This presentation will highlight three success stories from a new librarian’s first year: a reinvention of basic library instruction for our English 102 course; office hours and a pathfinder for our History 101 course; and, coauthoring an open access textbook (with a cop!). The presenter will encourage the audience to share their own success stories so that we can all grow together. Attendees will leave with a set of tips and tricks for developing their own successful faculty relationships.
