Embedded Librarianship: Integrating the Library into Your Course

Learn more about the NJIT library's embedded librarianship program


The NJIT Library for Students course is designed to teach students how to find, evaluate, and cite peer-reviewed information for their research. It was created by the reference and instruction librarians at NJIT to provide a large amount of information about using library resources to the classrooms without the need for scheduling in-person classroom sessions.


It is divided into 5 modules:

  • Question formulation

  • Types of Resources

  • Search Strategies

  • Evaluating Sources

  • The Practice of Citation


This course may be used as a standalone self-learning course in how to conduct library research, but individual modules may also be incorporated by instructors within other courses.  It's up the instructor how much/little of the course they would like to use. You are not obligated to use all of it! Modules can also be modified for your particular course.
