Embedded Librarianship: A Collaboration That Improves Student Learning Outcomes | Charlotte Law Library News

Embedded Librarianship: A Collaboration That Improves Student Learning Outcomes | Charlotte Law Library News | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

[Embedded librarianship] involves focusing on the needs of one or more specific groups, building relationships with these groups, developing a deep understanding of their work, and providing information services that are highly customized and targeted to their greatest needs. In effect, it involves shifting the basis of library services from the traditional, transactional, question-and-answer model of reference services to one in which there is high trust, close collaboration, and shared responsibility for outcomes.

Collaborating with Library Course Pages and Facebook: Exploring New Opportunities

"Technologies like library course pages and Facebook offer new opportunities for librarians and faculty to collaborate, integrate library content and services into student work spaces, and support and expand student learning.


During spring semester 2011, a library course page was developed for a graduate-level education class and sent to the instructor for review. That led to comment and expansion of content on the course page. After this interaction, the librarian joined the course Facebook group to explore this venue as an embedded librarian.


This article includes the librarian’s and instructor’s perspectives about this work. Collaborative use of social networking tools offers promise for a deeper and a wider range of learning opportunities by potentially enlarging the range of participants in the learning process and by moving class conversations beyond the limits of traditional course management systems..."
