Going Where They Are: Intentionally Embedding Librarians in Courses and Measuring the Impact on Student Learning
Summey, Terri Pedersen; Kane, Cynthia Akers
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v11 n1-2 p158-174 2017
The concept of embedded librarians is a way for academic librarians to be intentionally and strategically inserted in the learning and teaching process through a variety of initiatives. In a mid-size university, in order to better address the research and curricular needs of students and faculty members, librarians became more intentional about embedding themselves in academic departments and online courses. To assess the impact upon student learning, the librarians are working on a pilot project utilizing a variety of methods. This article describes the first phase of this assessment project, a survey of faculty teaching course in which faculty were embedded. Finally, information on next steps to assess the embedded librarian program using student surveys, focus groups, and interviews is presented.
