Embedded Librarianship Panel at the SLA Conference


Yesterday I participated in a panel on embedded librarianship at the SLA Conference. It was sponsored by the Pharma Division and moderated by Josh Duberman of NIH. We had an overflow audience in a room set up to hold 150 — so probably close to 200 in the audience. Susan Whitmore of NIH gave an outstanding presentation, based on a recently published paper that describes NIH’s Informationist program. Sorry, I don’ t have the paper or the citation with me. I’ll add it later.

My presentation and a selected reference list of recently published articles are available.

The Q&A at the end of the session was lively and I met several more librarians who are operating in interesting, successful embedded roles in their organizations. It was a great day!
