Embedded Librarianship: Connecting Faculty, Librarians, and Students in Online Courses to Improve Information Literacy Competences
Concurrent Session 3
The embedded librarianship model is based on collaborative partnerships between librarians and faculty to improve students’ information literacy competences. The focus of this session is to present strategies for planning, implementing, and evaluating the embedded librarianship model in online courses.
The embedded librarianship model is based on the collaborative and active work of librarians in diverse educational spaces. Under this model, librarians create partnerships with academic departments, professors, instructional designers, administrative staff, and students to collaborate in the integration and facilitation of experiences that help them develop and improve their informational literacy competences. This session includes strategies for planning, implementing, and evaluating the embedded librarianship model in online learning environments, based on a department led initiative to adopt the model at undergraduate and doctoral levels. Several approaches to embedding and collaborating will be discussed.
