Description: Embedded librarians work closely over time with non-librarian groups, whether by joining a semester-long course, maintaining an ongoing presence in online courses, participating in broad curriculum planning efforts, or joining the staffs of academic departments, clinical settings, or performing groups. Barbara Dewey coined the term in 2004, and she wrote: “Embedding requires more direct and purposeful interaction than acting in parallel with another person, group, or activity. Overt purposefulness makes embedding an appropriate definition of the most comprehensive collaborations for librarians in the higher education community".

More and more libraries are adopting embedded librarianship as an approach to creating an integrated and sustained library instruction presence in classes across the curriculum. In this webcast, embedded librarians will describe examples of successful embedded projects across the range of academic levels and departments, including both online and on-campus instruction.  They will share strategies for implementing, sustaining and assessing embedded librarianship.  The discussion will include best practices learned from multiple institutions, as well as issues to consider when planning an embedded initiative.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn about established best practices for embedding in order to adapt these practices to their own teaching practice.
  • Learn about models for assessment of embedded librarian projects in order to design effective, assessable projects.

Presenters: Cass Kvenild and Kaijsa Calkins, University of Wyoming
