Online Webinars! Interactive Learning where Our Users Are: The Future of Embedded Librarianship
Montgomery, Susan E.
Public Services Quarterly, v6 n2-3 p306-311 2010
College students today are spending more time online accessing information and connecting with each other. Libraries and librarians have made changes in their collections and services so as to be easily available and accessible in the online world. Embedding a librarian in a course enhances student learning by connecting students with reliable resources. Most embedded librarian programs focus on online courses but should be offered in face-to-face (F2F) classes as well. Embedded librarians can provide instruction via online Webinars to F2F classes giving them an interactive learning experience. Future embedded librarians need to adopt online Webinars as a way to be where our users and resources are.
