Taking Embedded Librarianship to the Next Level

You create value for your library and your own position within it when you become an instructional partner to faculty and a mentor to student researchers. Starting with Course management system tools and citations lists, Buffy J. Hamilton will show you how to use free or inexpensive web-based tools to offer research instruction. By reaching out to students on the web, you will make instruction available when it’s needed, and this ALA TechSource workshop will help you start a conversation with your community of learners and keep it going. 

Topics include:

  • Proven strategies for developing meaningful partnerships with instructors and students
  • How to support content standards and teach information literacy using social media
  • A toolbox tour—Google Apps, Twitter, YouTube, Skype, and more
  • Examples of how innovative librarians are applying these tools today
