Liaison librarians need to develop their research support skills, and a series of webinars in Queensland, run by Queensland University Libraries Office of Cooperation (QULOC) has made it easier than ever to do that. The need for liaison librarians (also known as subject or discipline librarians) to develop research support skills has been identified in many publications. Two prominent examples are the Research Libraries UK (RLUK) 2012 report by Mary Auckland, ‘Re-skilling for Research', and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) 2013 report by Janice Jaguszewski and Karen Williams, 'New Roles for New Times: Transforming liaison roles in research libraries’. Liaison librarians are using these skills to support researchers as well as extending the depth of support they can provide to undergraduates.
