Description

In response to the growing needs of distance learning students and faculty at Roosevelt University, the Library created an embedded librarian program and tested it in several classes beginning in Spring 2007. Distance learning librarians are “embedded” in classes in Blackboard, allowing us to reach students inside their courses and work closely with faculty to get students the help they need. This poster will demonstrate how our embedded librarian program has implemented custom course site pages integrating chat, blogs, and discussion boards to provide reference and instruction to online students.
