The IIUM Library at Main Campus Gombak has designed a Liaison Librarian programme,in which each Kuliyyah is assigned a reference librarian who is responsible on matters related to the Library and Kuliyyah. The Liaison Librarians work in partnership with Kuliyyah members to deliver information services, teach information literacy skills and develop the Library’s subject collections to support the University’s teaching, learning and research programmes. The programme has been initially practised by the Library since the year 2000. Within two (2) years, the library management has instilled the programme with workable processes and selected personnel. Since its existence, in ten (10) years’ time, the programme continuously received positive feedbacks from the users. This study examined Kulliyah’s member’s perceptions on the effectiveness of Liaison Librarians programme set up by the IIUM Library. A survey was distributed to the Kulliyah Board Members during the Kulliyyah Board Meeting (KBM) in order to measure effectiveness rate of the Liaison programme. In the survey, the members are expected to evaluate the effectiveness of the programme in terms of the communication mechanism, librarian personality and model of programme. The survey involved KBM members from Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyyah of Law (AIKOL), Kulliyyah of ICT, Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge & Human Science, Kulliyyah of Engineering, Kulliyyah of Economics, Kulliyyah of Architecture and Environmental Design, Institute of Education and Centre of Languages. Undoubtedly the liaison librarians are the intermediary personnel to convey all library matters to the Kulliyah members. Therefore, this study revealed how well the Kulliyyah members appreciated and how satisfied they were with the Liaison Librarian programme modelled by the IIUM Library.
