Embedded information skills training

We have found UK librarians providing library skills teaching not as a stand alone session, but embedded into academic modules, designed in conjunction with the teaching staff. These sessions run at all levels from 1st year undergraduate to doctoral level. For undergraduates, academics/faculty from the subject department provide the 1st hour of the lecture and the librarian provides the 2nd hour, so that sessions are ‘very joined up.’ Following success in one department, there is now demand for the programme to be extended to others.

We want to know whether this is widespread, or could it be the start of a new trend? US libarians seem to teach more than in the UK – Let us know your views…



‘Working together: evolving value for academic libraries’ is a six-month research project that will investigate the value of academic libraries for academic departments.
