Getting to Know…Nadine Anderson, “Getting in on the Conversation” Webinar Panelist

Nadine Anderson is one of the panelists for our “Getting in on the Conversation: Implementing and Leveraging Embedded Librarianship” webinar next Tuesday, August 29, 12p.m. to 1p.m. EST. If you haven’t registered yet, go to attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2861665211468238595, then read our interview below with Nadine. This is the last of the three interviews in our “Getting to know you” interview series with our three webinar panelists.

Q. 1. What is your job title?
Nadine: I am the Behavioral Sciences and Women’s & Gender Studies Librarian

Q. 2. Where do you work and how long have you worked there?
Nadine: I work at Mardigian Library, which is part of the University of Michigan, Dearborn campus. I have worked here for almost 4 years.

Q.3. What are your main job duties and how are you embedded?
Nadine: I do traditional collection development with both the Behavioral Sciences program and the Women’s & Gender Studies program. I am also physically embedded within the Behavioral Sciences program building three days a week, in my own office among the offices of Behavioral Sciences faculty. This better allows me to develop teaching partnerships and to provide research help to undergraduate and graduate students. I am embedded in courses and course management sites, as a thesis research consultant in graduate and honors programs, and am working with faculty and program leadership on several information literacy initiatives to strategically embed information literacy development into program curricula. Due to the highly interdisciplinary nature of the Women’s & Gender Studies program – many courses are taught by faculty in programs which do not fall under my responsibility – I am not able to be embedded in their program in the same way that I am in the Behavioral Sciences program.

End of interview

Thanks Nadine!

Join our Webinar: Getting in on the Conversation: Implementing and Leveraging Embedded Librarianship

You’re invited! Join the Embedded Librarians Caucus for a webinar, “Getting in on the Conversation: Implementing and Leveraging Embedded Librarianship,” Tuesday, August 29, noon – 1 p.m. US Eastern time.

This panel session will be a discussion between session participants and three embedded librarians, who will present three distinct models of embedded librarianship, representing a broad spectrum of disciplines, audiences, and goals. Participants will learn strategies for implementing embedded librarianship to engage different campus communities and leveraging it to demonstrate their value by contributing to the overall goals at their institution.

Panelists will share their strategies for leveraging embedded librarianship, including:

  • “don’t wait for the invitation: crash the party””
  • “forget the elevator speech: focus on troubleshooting”
  • “proactively engage your audience: flaunt your expertise”

Each panelist will briefly discuss their experience with leveraging embedded librarianship to contribute to the overall goals of their institution:

  • Jean Song, in a Health Sciences/Medical program, proactively interacting with faculty in order to partner in research analysis including successfully receiving grant funding to support existing grant funded projects or providing analysis on research projects such as bibliometric investigation.
  • Nadine Anderson, in a Behavioral Sciences program, proactively working with faculty on issues with undergraduate research and critical thinking skills (or lack thereof) and becoming part of the solution by partnering with faculty on educational projects and a credit course integrated into their courses and curriculum
  • Joel Scheuher, in a Business program, collaborating directly with graduate students as a member of their action based learning teams, contributing as research experts to solve real-world challenges

You must register in advance to attend. To sign up, go to: attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2861665211468238595
