Embedded Library Services

Purpose:

To provide online and hybrid students the same library services as on-campus students, the Auburn University Montgomery Library is launching the Embedded Library Services, which consists of the following:

  1. Embedded Library Content (ELC) – Av

 

  1. Embedded Librarian (ELib) 
  • Customized research guide live and  librarian embedded in pre-arranged Blackboard role
  • Chat with YOUR Library that directs chats to Embedded Librarian  
  • Embedded Librarian engages with students based on professor preference

The AUM Library encourages professors from all disciplines to request either option for their courses; however, courses with less research components will find ELibC more suitable for their purposes, while courses with heavy research and/or library components should consider the ELib service.
