Lori Lysiak, reference and instruction librarian, recently gave three presentations about her work on integrating online embedded librarianship in resident courses.

Lysiak gave the talk “Own It!: Transforming Academic Integrity in the FYE” at the thirty-eighth Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience, held in Las Vegas Feb. 16-19, 2019. She discussed her ongoing collaboration with Penn State Altoona history faculty to integrate online academic integrity tutorials into their courses.

Lysiak also co-presented at the Association of College and Research Libraries Distance Learning Section (DLS) Research and Publications Committee on March 7, 2019. The presentation was “Across the Campuses and Around the Globe: Reaching Online Learners through High-Level Embedded Librarianship.” Lysiak, along with co-authors Victoria Raish, online learning librarian at University Park, and Emily Mross, business librarian and outreach coordinator at Penn State Harrisburg, led this project. They were invited to present the Author Forum after their paper was chosen as one of the top five articles on embedded librarianship by the DLS in January 2019. A recording of this presentation is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUFdjoWDq7w&feature=youtu.be.

Finally, Lysiak presented “Updated Collaborative Approaches: Incorporating Online Embedded Librarian Techniques into Resident Instruction” at Penn State’s 2019 Symposium for Teaching and Learning with Technology on March 16. Lysiak discussed an ongoing study she’s conducting with Penn State Altoona marketing professor Tulay Girard on integrating online embedded librarian principles, Zoom, and Kaltura videos in Marketing 301 to optimize student/librarian engagement beyond the traditional 50-minute library instruction class.
