Facilitating support of cyber: Toward a new liaison model with cybersecurity education at Augusta University

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article presents the growth of cybersecurity education on American college campuses as a challenge and an opportunity for all librarians to liaise across schools and departments. Drawing on the experiences of one business and systems librarian serving as library liaison to the College of Business and the newly formed Cyber Institute at Augusta University, this article details the challenges of organizing to liaise with disparate constituencies in a new and rapidly growing subject area. In addition, it looks at the effects that the establishment of Army Cyber Command and the new cybersecurity studies program can have on librarianship now and in the future. Finally, this article considers the usefulness of this new liaison model in light of current and future innovations in higher education.
