Description

Academic librarians routinely assist faculty seeking information on diverse topics. Librarians may overlook potentially useful information, however, if they are unaware of faculty interests that are not mentioned in a specific request. At the East Tennessee State University (ETSU) Medical Library, a team of librarians developed a faculty interests database to improve reference services and collection development. This paper describes the creation and implementation of the database and the faculty response.
