Information literacy instruction is best when it is integrated into actual research, and in higher education that means embedding librarianship into the learning management system (LMS). This new How-To-Do-It Manual is geared towards academic librarians already working with classes in an LMS as well as those considering how to begin a pilot. Tumbleson and Burke, who surveyed 280 librarians for information on related activities, also use their own first-hand experience implementing an embedded librarianship program at their university to offer guidance and encouragement. Showing how to start a program that can be adapted and made sustainable, they include information on* Implementing a simple pilot program with a librarian and one or two faculty * Understanding and managing workload * 9 tips for an effective email solicitation asking faculty to participate * 10 selling points to attract students to LMS services
