ALA Annual Program Description

With so much interest in embedding libraries and librarians into course mangement systems, we thought it would be a good opportunity to have a focused discussion on this topic at Annual. We just submitted the following description to the program book:

Embedded Librarians In Course Management Systems: Transforming Ourselves.

Are you embedded in a CMS? If the answer is “yes,” share challenges, opportunities, and best practice methods used to collaborate with faculty and strengthen communication with students by being embedded in a faculty’s course management system. If the answer is “not yet,” bring your questions and help drive a discussion that started at Midwinter.

There have been some great articles published on this topic recently. Check out the following:
