Great post Ruth! I completely agree. I think there are so many benefits from having subject specialists in academic libraries. I┬áthink that the main benefit is the perception of the library within a faculty. As you mention faculty are more likely to respect librarians who show a genuine interest, passion and expertise in the same subject matter. This is so important to gaining supportive stakeholders and champions of the library who can promote the library’s services to other stakeholders.
