What Is an Embedded Librarian?
Embedded librarianship is a collaborative experience involving the librarian, a class instructor, and the students. The librarian is embedded in the Blackboard shell to build links to relevant resources and assist students with their questions.
What Is Their Instructional Role?
Embedded Librarians do not interpret instructor’s assignments for students, discuss the marking rubric with students, or grade any assignments. They will refer any non-research, course-related questions to the instructor.
Instructors can request a librarian embedded in Blackboard for online and hybrid courses to assist students at their point of need. Librarians can post links to research guides, databases, and tutorials.
Librarians will browse your Blackboard shells for assignments that require students to use the Library and offer help. Please encourage your students to take advantage of our services.
Over 90% of faculty members responding to an end-of-semester survey said that having an embedded librarian helped their students do better quality research!
