In this session, attendees will learn about online faculty-librarian collaborations from two librarians who worked with faculty to create an embedded librarian program that began with a basic level of collaboration via a presence in the learning management system and has since grown to include more advanced levels of collaboration including synchronous and asynchronous information literacy opportunities and even assignment and course modification and creation.
In addition to seeing examples of all levels of collaboration, attendees will learn the strategies used to begin this collaboration and how librarians continue to work with faculty to refine and enhance collaborations and create new collaborative opportunities. Finally, attendees will learn how these librarians are applying these collaborations with faculty to education initiatives at their affiliated health system.
