Embedded Librarianship Collaboration with
Disciplines
We have been, and are continuing to
examine opportunities to embed
academic library instruction into the
curriculum:
• To spend more than one class period to
teach them the overall information
seeking process and strategies;
• To produce independent learners with
transferable information literacy skills
through embedded librarianship and
faculty collaboration for lifelong learning.
