Abstract
As a born-digital user-centric library, KAUST University Library adopts a patron-driven acquisition model which allows patrons to recommend monographs and other resources to be added to the library collection. This presentation focuses on the role of the liaison librarian in this acquisition model and the process which takes place when a recommendation is first initiated by the patron (faculty, researcher, or student), to resource identification, review of license agreements, before the recommendation is handled over to the Acquisitions Team.
