Abstract:

Here is the first comprehensive survey of the growing practice of "embedded librarianship"-a strategic model for placing information professionals into partnerships with the individuals and working groups that depend upon their knowledge and expertise. David Shumaker looks at implementations in all types of organizations, identifies the characteristics of successful embedded librarians, and explains how information professionals in public, academic, school, medical, law, and other specialized library settings are using embedded librarianship principles to enhance their work and careers. In demonstrating the value of information professionals to a broad range of knowledge-intensive projects, The Embedded Librarian is an important book for managers and executives involved in team building. In addition, its wealth of practical coverage and analysis, case studies, templates, and exercises make the book an invaluable resource for library school students, practicing librarians who wonder if an embedded role is right for them, and current embedded librarians who want to be ready for new opportunities in this exciting area of library work.
