By adding an embedded librarian to your eCampus class, you and your students can receive customized assistance with anything research, citation, or library related. Once added to your class and able to see your course requirements and assignment directions, an embedded librarian is able to assist with the specific needs of your students via email, chat, discussion boards, or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. You can work with your embedded librarian to create a schedule of virtual assistance "office hours" or online library instruction sessions with some or all of your students. Or, your embedded librarian can review student research sources or source citations via email or even as eCampus assignment submissions.To discuss these offerings and any other assistance you would like from an embedded librarian, please contact Dana Corbin.
