The role of the embedded librarian takes many forms – in higher education, community health organizations, support groups and businesses. Embedded librarianship can include team teaching a course, becoming an important part of an annual health event, integrating library resources into a course curriculum or even becoming a member of a medical research team. This 6 hour face to face course will discuss best practices and tools for embedded librarianship. We will explore how to initiate a collaborative relationship with faculty, medical teams or community organizations, and also teach you how to partner with them for better outcomes. Participants will learn how to improve or build new relationships and become an integral part of the curriculum, event, or program of study. We will also learn how to use emerging technology tools in embedded librarianship for communication and collaboration. Participants will share and brainstorm ideas to empower embedded librarianship within our organizations.
This class is appropriate for any type of librarian working in a teaching or outreach capacity in both medical and non-medical settings.
