Library Technology Reprots February/March 2012 vol.48 no. 2 As librarians look for ways to infuse information, digital, and new media literacies into authentic research tasks in the context of content area study and passion-based information-seeking needs, many librarians are turning to the model of embedded librarianship to establish and foster collaborative partnerships for learning. At the root of embedded librarianship is the establishment and growth of relationships that cultivate trust, enabling the librarian to become a true partner in teaching and learning. This report explores how embedded libraranship can use free and low-cost teaching technologies to support and enhance participatory learning experiences in school and academic libraries. Case studies explore ways partnerships for learning were forged and the impact of these collaborative relationships on the understandings and experiences of learners of all ages.
