Today I’d like to mention two interesting opportunities to explore embedded librarianship.
First, the SLA San Diego Chapter will be devoting its Fall Seminar to the topic. I love their title: “The Library as Velcro: Embedding the Library into the Larger Organization”. If you’re in San Diego or can get there on Oct. 12, this sounds like a great meeting to check out. See more details on their website.
Second, you might be interested in an article from the Journal of the Medical Library Association, “Librarian-perceived barriers to the implementation of the informationist / information specialist in context role.” If you’re not in the biomedical information field, I think you’ll still find much of interest in this research report. It’s available on PubMed.
