OLA Conference 2012 - Embedded Librarians - Sarah Mead
Embedded librarians? Like, where you ride around with the troops all day and offer them reader's advisory? Well, no. Actually it's the idea of sending librarians out into the community to do more than the usual tabling; to offer our professional information-finding skills and reference services off-site, to partner with other departments and neighboring library systems and, okay, maybe to provide a little reader's advisory to boot. Find out how easy it is to offer this value-added service to your community and remind them of just how relevant we still are.
*See the notes view of each slide for the sections titled "Taking it to the Streets" and "Red Apron Mamas" for details about the specific activities MCL is trying as embedded librarians.
