Embedded Librarianship

Almeida, N., & Pollack, J. (2017). In bed with the library: A critical exploration of embedded librarianship at the City University of New York. Communications in Information Literacy, 11 (1), 122-146. https://doi.org/10.15760/comminfolit.2017.11.1.38

This project considers the efficacy and scalability of embedded librarianship initiatives within the City University of New York (CUNY) library system and presents findings of an original research study conducted in 2015. Through an analysis of recent LIS literature on embedment, response data from a survey of librarians, and a selection of library position descriptions, this article examines the implications of embedment practices for librarians and libraries. By shedding light on the extent and context of embedment, the platforms used in virtual embedment scenarios, and obstacles that librarians presently face, this study aims to pinpoint strategies for embedded librarianship initiatives and begin a productive dialogue about the future of library integration in classrooms and educational technology platforms.
