An Update from David Shumaker

Greetings Caucus members!

This is #2 in our series to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the Embedded Librarians Caucus.

Since the previous update in early October, there have been several newsworthy developments:

  • Membership has grown from 67 to 81! Thank you all for supporting the caucus!
  • Our first webinar, “How to Get an Embedded Librarian Job”, was announced for Dec. 15, 1:00—2:30 p.m. US Eastern time. It will feature five Caucus members sharing their experiences and insights. Already, 244 people have signed up! Are you one of them? If not, you can still register at
  • I filed our first annual Caucus report to SLA last week. It will be posted on our website in the near future. The annual report is required for us to get our SLA dues allotment and maintain our status with SLA.

Speaking of SLA, coming up we’ll need to develop plans for our Caucus meeting at the Annual Conference next June in Philadelphia. If you have suggestions or would like to help organize this, please let me know. I’m thinking along the lines of a short business meeting, followed by an informal event where members and friends can get to know one another – what are your thoughts?

Last but not least, please keep in touch! Contact me at or with your ideas. I look forward to hearing from you.
