    3. 3. Information Literacy Librarians have identified information literacy as “the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively and responsibly use and share that information for the problem at hand” (AAC&U).
    4. 4. Embedded Librarianship “Embedded librarians are librarians who work closely with teaching faculty in their courses, providing a library resource to students throughout the course of the entire semester.” http://dept.harpercollege.edu/library/instructse rvices/embeddedlibrarian.html
    5. 5. The Access Entitlement Principle “Every student, faculty member, administrator, staff member, or any other member of an institution of higher education, is entitled to the library services and resources of that institution, including direct communication with the appropriate library personnel, regardless of where enrolled or where located in affiliation with the institution. Academic libraries must, therefore, meet the information and research needs of all these constituents, wherever they may be.” -- Association of College & Research Libraries, Standards for Distance Learning Library Services http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/guidelinesdistancelear ning
