What’s an Embedded Librarian?
An embedded librarian is a librarian that is integrated into a class for a period of time to support the student's in their research process.
Why do I need an embedded librarian?
Many students have difficulties and need help, not only accessing resources remotely but knowing what resources and services are available to them. An embedded librarian will provide support for these students in their virtual space. We are here to help.
As a library, we want to use existing technologies and education concepts that will not only create better instruction but be flexible. We want to look at library instruction as an ongoing process, not a one-time activity. We also want to be respectful of classroom time. We can accomplish this using existing technologies, such as LibGuides, Video Express, and be flexible for whatever the future brings. This may include synchronous sessions online, virtual reference, embedded librarianship, and collecting data wish will help to better understand what our students need.
