Webinar: Moving the Front Lines Online - Embedding Reference Librarians in Online Classes

Speaker April Becker

Amigos Library Services

Students are not always aware of the resources available through the library, so embedding a librarian into an online course module to assist in navigating databases and locating, evaluating, and citing the best sources for projects can be an invaluable support service. In this 2-hour class, learn how the embedded program began at the instructor's institution, how it works on a daily basis, how it's grown in the past couple of years, and how to implement an embedded program at your own library.

Learning Objectives:

* Librarians will understand how the embedded program started and how it works on a daily basis.
* Librarians will identify best practices and share new ideas for the embedded program.
*Librarians will begin to develop an embedded program for their institutions.

Target Audience:

Suited for any librarian at an institution that uses course management software (like Blackboard or WebCT), especially relevant to academic librarians.

This class is designed for individual participation; each individual must register. This class is a $130 value, brought to you by the NY3Rs Association, Inc. at a cost of only $10, if you are a member of one of the nine regional councils.
