Embedded librarians: one library's model for decentralized service.

The article discusses an initiative of the Arizona Health Science Library (AHSL) at the University of Arizona to increase library services for students and faculty by utilizing the information specialist concept. The author notes decreased library circulation and use by faculty. AHSL liaison librarians were embedded with researchers in the school's research building, as well as the medical and pharmacy colleges, to provide decentralized library service and information support to researchers in different disciplines and fields. The author notes the success of the liaison program, leading to its expansion into the university's nursing college. Liaison librarians can attend faculty meetings and serve on faculty committees.

I wish I could attend this, but I'll be at a LARP all weekend. Hopefully it will be offered again, or available as an archive. Our district will be starting to use Moodle soon, and I'd like to get the library in from the start.

"The class that I joined via Twitter was called “From Memex to YouTube: Introduction to New Media Studies.” It was a first-year honors seminar. The focus of the class was to understand the field of New Media Studies by exploring the “digital medium” in all of its various technological, historical, cultural and educational expressions. Some of Dr. Campbell’s learning objectives for the class were to understand “the past and future of computers and how they affect how we think and what we do.” Integral to the class learning experience, Dr. Campbell wanted the students to not just examine but use new media technologies and applications. As such, the students were required to blog before every class, comment substantively on another classmate’s blog, contribute to the class wiki, tag links of interest using Delicious.com, and participate in a class discussion using Twitter (using a designated class hashtag).

This framework that Dr. Campbell set out for the class helps his students begin to curate what he calls their “personal cyberinfrastructure”, which he believes is crucial “to shape their own cognition, learning, expression, and reflection in a digital age, in a digital medium.”
