In 2004, Université de Moncton’s Senate published a report recommending that
Faculties were to revise, renew and restructure their academic programs. The
library did not sit idle. We submitted our own report outlining the library’s vision of
fully integrating information literacy as part of mandatory introductory
methodology courses tailored to each Faculty. Over the next 10 years, the library
slowly and progressively worked its way into the classroom in a more meaningful
way, moving away from the one-shot instruction model and forging ever tighter
bonds with departments that were willing to open their doors. The mounting wave
finally crashed to shore in 2014, when the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences was
the first to fully implement its redesigned programs. A new mandatory methodology
course was created titled "FASS 1000 – Introduction au travail intellectuel". The
combination of our recommendations and our consistent networking finally paid off
- the two librarians assigned to the Faculty were invited to participate as coteachers.
This not only impacted greatly on the workload of the librarians, but
fundamental changes needed to be implemented across the entire library to
facilitate librarians’ evolving roles across campus. In this presentation, we will share
some highlights and stumbling blocks of our experiences as embedded librarians,
and how the library used this game-changing opportunity to modernise the way we
do business.
