Embedded Librarian Request

An embedded librarian is a close partnership with one of COCC's Barber Librarians. You will be matched with a librarian who will ultimately be immersed in your class as well as your Blackboard presence (which might be one and the same for online classes).

Best practices include:

  • offering multiple instructional sessions with your librarian
  • creating a graded assignment with your embedded librarian to assess your students' information literacy skills
  • including your librarians' contact information in your syllabus/Bb contact area

As this program can be work intensive, it is best to check with your department chair before filling out this form.

If you are not interested in the embedded program, consider inviting a librarian into your class with one or two information literacy sessions.
