The Life & Times of an Embedded Librarian
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.
