Librarians on the Move: Embedded Librarians
Years ago, in the late 90’s when we had an official reference desk and students ambled their way into the library to ask for research assistance I thought it would be a good proactive idea to take the reference desk to students on their home turf in their residence hall, dining area and socializing entities. I thought, “ What better way to burst the illusion bubble that academic librarians were unhelpful, grouchy and untouchable.”
