Embedded Librarian at Singapore Polytechnic: A Case Study

By Francine Chu

The School of Chemical and Life Sciences (CLS) at Singapore Polytechnic welcomed an embedded librarian in October 2016. The librarian worked with several lecturers on a key initiative of the school to use existing resources and content to develop e-learning packages for continuing education and training (CET) courses. The librarian was involved in learning the course creation software and creating parts of an e-learning course, and was also able to recommend more relevant EduTech tools and e-resources to augment the courses. This paper is an account of the embedded librarian’s experience in this project and highlights some key lessons learnt.
