Many academic libraries rely on a network of departmental liaisons to promote services to faculty, staff, and students. We are constantly rebuilding one-on-one relationships within departments as people move to other institutions, disengage, or retire. In this presentation, we will discuss how a recent project highlighted the value of targeting existing academic networks to sustainably integrate library services into research and learning. We worked with researchers in a research center on campus to come up with a workflow to prepare and share their data. The center was required by its funder to come up with a pilot project to improve data management in the field of chemistry, which does not have a strong data sharing culture. We collaborated with students, faculty, and publishers to find and implement a feasible plan. We will discuss the relationships that made this project sustainable and implications for other academic library outreach efforts.
