      The increased use of online information resources has allowed health sciences librarians to seek new roles outside of the physical library. A proactive approach is needed to provide information at the time and location of need. The Georgia Regents University (GRU) Librarians have responded to this shift by exploring a model of embedded librarianship that provides specialized assistance and deeper involvement at the college level. Embedded librarianship uses a service model that incorporates librarians as active university participants as opposed to the traditional role of service providers.
