The Life & Times of an Embedded Librarian

Galadriel Chilton, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse


In Fall 2007, Galadriel was an embedded librarian for four sections of a Communications Studies class, and in Spring 2008 she was the embedded librarian for 3 sections of the same course. This presentation reviews what she did, technology used, and why she believes - based on anecdotal data, student bibliographies, and student self-evaluations - being an embedded librarian is an effective means of teaching information literacy and introducing students to academic library services.

Galadriel Chilton is the Electronic Resources Librarian at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.
