  10. 10. Integrated Model All reference librarians staff both the physical reference desk and virtual reference deskEmbry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the world’s largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation andaerospace, is a nonprofit, independent institution offering more than 40 baccalaureate, master’s and Ph.D. degreeprograms in its colleges of Arts and Sciences, Aviation, Business and Engineering. Embry-Riddle educates students atresidential campuses in Daytona Beach, Fla., and Prescott, Ariz., and through the Worldwide Campus with more than150 locations in the United States, Europe, Asia, Canada and the Middle East.Introduction:Worldwide Library Services was previously a separate university department which did not report to the Hunt Library.In 1997, the stand-alone library services department became part of the Hunt Library. The first change was to integrateall the reference librarians. The Daytona Beach Reference Librarians were trained to do Worldwide reference and viceversa. Pros: Librarians get to know the collections better because they serve both groups of students/faculty/staff. Librarians are exposed to a wider variety of students. Librarians have subject interaction with faculty on the Daytona Beach campus which can assist in providing Worldwide reference. Randomness of patrons allow for a shared workload (i.e. no one librarian generally gets “stuck” with all hard questions). Greater collaboration amongst librarians for the complicated questions we get through Worldwide. Larger staff to ensure service points coverage; since librarians are cross-trained, service point substitutions is seamless. Librarians still have face-to-face interaction since they staff the physical Daytona Beach Campus service points. As a whole, the library is a better library due to the inclusion of the distance students’ needs. All virtual students receive robust, seamless assistance. Cons: At our institution, from a staffing perspective, there are no cons.

  12. 12.  How are roles changing now that distance/online are blurring? Do we still need a distinction between distance/subject librarians? What makes us unique, special anymore? Where there is a distinction, how do we collaborate? What are our roles? How can we market our library services to distance education students and faculty?
