  • About the Authors
The Embedded Librarian's Cookbook offers step-by-step guidelines for implementing tested approaches to embedded librarianship. As with ACRL's 2009 Library Instruction Cookbook, the "recipes" are sorted into categories related to different uses and depth of need. This second Cookbook provides librarians with a variety of approaches to embedding instruction in courses and to assessing these activities. 55 recipes aimed at different audiences and for a wide variety of situations are presented. This volume builds on the ACRL 2011 publication Embedded Librarianship: Moving Beyond One-shot Instruction, also Kaijsa Calkins and Cassandra Kvenild. 
The Embedded Librarian's Cookbook is essential for all instruction and liaison librarians and useful for schools of library and information science professional collections.
