A Declaration of Embeddedness: Instructional Synergies and Sustaining Practices in LMS Embedded Librarianship

Presentation at the ACRL 2011 Conference, April 1, 2011

Coffee shop in Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphia, PA

Beth Tumbleson and John Burke, Miami University Middletown

Embedded librarianship represents today's primary and most productive approach to delivering information literacy instruction to students, who want individualized, immediate assistance. Traditionally, librarians have interacted with students using five methods; now reference/instruction librarians may incorporate best practices from each and offer research help connected with faculty assignments in the LMS. Presenters will share tested, sustaining practices that enable even a small staff to collaborate with faculty, embed in their courses, and reach students.
