Embeddedness offers librarians the opportunity to extend the role of the library liaison. While embeddedness in librarianship is not a new idea, Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standards have improved the tools librarians can use to embed in courses. Through learning managements systems (LMS), librarians can utilize LTIs as they interact with students and instructors. Librarians who strive to be holistic liaisons can incorporate LTIs in order to support learning at the point of need.
This presentation will highlight the ways an Electronic Resources Librarian and a Digital Learning Librarian are embedding in college-level courses in order to collaborate more effectively with instructors and instructional designers. The presenters will show how they embed in learning management systems and leverage LTIs in order to facilitate active learning. The presenters will also show how LTIs can generate awareness of library resources, drive use of electronic resources, and create efficiencies and relationships with instructional designers. Throughout the presentation, presenters will explore new opportunities for assessment and understanding the use of library resources, advocacy to vendors to develop LTIs, copyright compliance and licensing. Attendees will leave the session with methods to use LTI tools to promote and extend the library’s services, and they will be able to explain the benefits of using LTIs and the role of the embedded librarian in an LMS.
