Higher education institutions increasingly utilize learning management systems (LMS) to teach courses and programs in hybrid or online-only formats. Providing information literacy instruction in these emerging digital environments poses challenges to librarians as the delivery of instruction requires familiarity with navigating an LMS and extensive technological skills. Embedded librarianship is one possible solution, but sustaining this approach requires substantial time and effort. During the summer of 2013, a task force of librarians at San José State University (SJSU) met these instructional challenges by developing a suite of online information literacy modules. As a result, all SJSU librarians, in consultation with teaching faculty, can select from a variety of standalone, customizable modules to embed within the campus LMS. This case study showcases the task force's process and initial outcomes, which can serve as a model for librarians encountering similar challenges and making comparable efforts toward embedded librarianship at their institutions.
