Nursing and library faculty face many information literacy challenges when graduate nursing programs migrate to online course delivery. The authors describe a collaborative model for providing cost-effective online library services to new graduate students in a three-university consortium. The embedded librarian service links a health sciences librarian to students through a commonly used courseware management system. Recommendations are presented for faculty and librarians who may consider using a similar approach.
