Building relationships between university libraries The umbrella affiliation agreement between the University of Vermont and PUCP, in effect since 2010, initially focused on the subject areas of biomedical technology and instrumentation. However, as relationships on the two campuses were built and strengthened, other collaborative opportunities beyond the original focus emerged, including with Engineering, Public Administration, and the Libraries. Kathia Hanza, director of PUCP Libraries, expressed interest in facilitating our return in March 2016, to focus on development of library research guides as a mechanism to present library resources in contextually meaningful ways. When we did return in March, it was with a sense of familiarity and connection that allowed us to launch into more focused dialog and work . The extent of the work that PUCP librarians had already done on their library guide development in a relatively short period of time was extremely impressive. PUCP Libraries have recently launched their thematic subject guides, which are prominently featured on their library home page.
