This chapter [from the book "Approaches to Liaison Librarianship: Innovations in Organization and Engagements," edited by Robin Canuel and Chad Crichton published by ACRL in 2021] advocates for the creation of structures that give liaison librarians supervisory responsibilities in order to create pathways to administrative and higher-level management positions for them. Using the UH Libraries Liaison Services department as a case study, the authors explore the benefits of a supervising coordinator model and the limitations of this structure. This in-depth exploration delineates what is possible for the professional growth of liaison librarians and the future health of the library leadership pipeline.
