Assessing the Value of Embedded Librarians in an Online Graduate Educational Technology Course
Edwards, Mary; Kumar, Swapna; Ochoa, Marilyn
Public Services Quarterly, v6 n2-3 p271-291 2010
The increase in online programs has been accompanied by the need for library instruction and support for online students. Students enrolled in off-campus programs have to be able to successfully access and use digital library resources to complete course requirements. An embedded librarian project in an online graduate educational technology course resulted in several benefits for students. The results of pre- and postassessment questionnaires, discussion forum feedback, and an instructor interview indicated that embedded librarians can greatly help students in their online assignments. Further research and recommendations for the implementation and assessment of embedded librarian projects are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
