The role of the embedded librarian takes many forms - in learning communities, community organizations, support groups and businesses. Embedded librarianship can include team teaching a course, becoming an important part of a local film/art/music festival, or integration of library resources into a school curriculum or an organization’s event. This course will discuss best practices and tools for working as an embedded librarian. We will explore how to initiate a collaborative relationship with faculty or community organizations, and also teach you how to partner with them for better student or event success. Participants will learn how to improve relationships with faculty and organizations and become an integral part of the curriculum, event, or program of study. We will also discuss how to use emerging technologies in embedded librarianship as communication and collaborative tools.
