What we know from the literature:

One of the most important aspects of making embedded librarianship successful is the teamwork between the professor and the librarian. They need to work together to develop shared goals and integrate the library resources into the syllabus. For the students, it is important for them to understand the relevance of learning research skills, not just for the current or future classes but for their careers and lives.
