Abstract: The term “embedded librarian” is a redefinition of the professional identity of the librarian. Working beyond the confines of a library, the embedded librarian seeks to understand and respond authentically to students’ information needs within their natural environment. NUS Libraries has been facing increasing requests for information literacy programmes that are oneshot instructional sessions. Grappling with these, librarians sought to embed information literacy into the curriculum. This article tells the story of how conversations on student learning between an academic and a librarian led to embedding a librarian in Ridge View Residential College, National University of Singapore (NUS).
