What’s an Embedded Librarian?
An embedded librarian is a librarian that is integrated into an online class for a period of time to support the students in their research process.
Why do I need an embedded librarian?
Many of our students here at UWF are in entirely online programs. They may never visit campus or any of our physical libraries. Fortunately, the library has a wealth of electronic resources that can be accessed remotely. But having the resources is not enough. Many students don't realize the resources they have access to through the library, how to access them, or how using them can benefit their scholarly work. An embedded librarian will provide support for these students in their virtual space.

Who do I contact?
The subject specialist for your department is the best person to contact. You can find a list of which librarians assist which departments here. If you have general questions about the program, please contact Amanda Ziegler, our online outreach librarian at email@example.com.
