Aaron Wimer, Laura Palmer, Morgan Rhetts This presentation will take a look at the 5 years of the "Embedded Librarian Program" at the former Southern Polytechnic State University. This will include its beginnings, growth, expansion, and transition to the "New U" of consolidation. We will also discuss issues that occurred during planning and implementation, as well as issues that arose later in the process. We also consider the importance of faculty buy-in for digital librarianship and examine the importance of faculty involvement both at the start and throughout the program's development. Finally, we will share our evaluation and analysis of the 5 year program, along with suggestions for starting a Digital Librarian Program at other institutions.
