Short Session Description (one line): This session will share examples of how librarians can embed information literacy and library services in new ways: physically, locally, digitally, and globally.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):  From age 5 to 105, today’s learners and library users are accessing content on mobile devices and in digital formats more frequently.  Students now spend a huge portion of time in digital spaces in today’s digital culture which means that librarians are challenged with promoting digital citizenship and information literacy in new formats. Understanding how to evaluate digital content, respect information property, and become an ethical digital citizen is a challenge for everyone.  Librarians of every type (academic, public, school or special) can help learners and users understand information literacy in digital culture through embedding librarianship in numerous ways, such as video tutorials, gamification, traveling librarians, online course content, social media, and libguides.  Through sharing examples of various embedded librarians, this session will help others think about embedded librarianship as an important concept for all information professionals.
