  14. 14. What can an Embedded Librarian do?
  15. 15. Kenneth Jarvis Associate Professor Hospitality, Culinary Arts & Tourism
  16. 16. Supporting Distance Learners • Hotel Restaurant Management is a statewide designated program • This broadens the audience and increases the demand for distance learning • Embedding a librarian in the class made sense; to provide distance learners with the same quality resources as those on campus • As the demand for distance learning increased, library resources expanded
  17. 17. Supporting Distance Learners • The library has developed “guides” for many college programs containing relevant resources • Students are required to complete an MLA bibliography assignment using the “citation guide” • In an introduction course, students write papers using specific library database resources
  18. 18. Student Support, Another Example  HRM 232, World Culture and Cuisine  Research paper  Fact sheet  PowerPoint Presentation  Streaming Videos  On server  Films.com
  19. 19. Pulling it all Together  This is an amazing collegial effort between the instructor, the library and the instructional designers from the Virtual Campus  To support student learning and success  To meet college wide core competencies  Information Literacy  Technology Fluency  Communication
  20. 20. Sandra King Associate Professor English and Communications
  21. 21. Supporting Distance Learners  Online students usually pay fees for services, but don’t always use them.  They may not know how to get a library card, access the library catalogue or databases, or get help with research questions.
  22. 22. Other ideas:  I also mention the library discussion in the assignment itself. For example, I tell students to use the links which Prof. Cone has placed in the library discussion rather than sources such as Wikipedia and About.com.
  23. 23. Benefits:  Online students feel that they have their own personal librarian available to assist them.  Even students who take both online and on-campus classes benefit because they don’t always access library services while on campus.
  24. 24. Remember-  You are not alone!  Take advantage of your library, its resources and people
