We Will Be Assimilated: Five Experiences in Embedded Librarianship
Bartnik, Linda; Farmer, Katherine; Ireland, Ashley; Murray, Lilia; Robinson, Julie
Public Services Quarterly, v6 n2-3 p150-164 2010
Embedded librarians are attempting assimilation into a new pedagogical collective outside the library, often with a mission to improve the quality of service to that collective. But like the Borg, embedded librarians may not be achieving the results they envision. This article documents the varied experiences of five reference librarians at Murray State University and the challenges faced in incorporating themselves within the fabric of their college. The examinations by each individual will include a brief history of their liaison position, challenges and obstacles encountered, and embedding methods utilized in an attempt to achieve successful assimilation. (Contains 2 tables.)
