Shumaker's review of the literature was invaluable while part 2 is a practical guide on implmenting an embedded librarian program, from initial assessments to strategies for success. If you are looking into beginning an embedded program or even looking to improve a current program, this would make an excellent beginning. Each of them spoke briefly about their experience with embedded librarianship and then led breakout sessions designed to be informal question-and-answer roundtables. I attended the session with Ms. Young-Jones, an embedded librarian in the intellectual property group at Reed Smith.
For example, in some organizations, like law firms, the embedded librarian could sit in the practice group to which she is assigned rather than in the library.

In that kind of arrangement, the librarian might focus all of her time meeting the research needs of one practice group. Or, as in Ms. Young-Jones takes it. This is true for any office across the firm with an IP-related need; Ms. Young-Jones takes anything IP-related that comes in, regardless of which office is doing the requesting.

One of the benefits associated with embedding librarians in law firms, for example, is the ability for librarians to provide more efficient, targeted research and service. By getting to know the attorneys and tools used by a particular practice group, the embedded librarian can provide highly specialized research and assistance that is tailored to meet the needs of specific attorneys. For example, she attends IP practice group meetings so that she knows what the group is working on and what their upcoming information and research-related needs are likely to be. After a broad introduction to the concept, the first grouping of chapters focus on different areas of librarianship: higher education, health sciences, corporations and nonprofits, and K schools and public libraries.
As an academic librarian, I read the chapter on higher education. It's organization is comparable to the other chapters. Shumaker expands the term to include subject librarians and liaisons, contrasting their responsibilities to embedded librarians. He also points out differences among types of academic institutions and how this can determine librarianship duties. What I most appreciate about this text is the inclusion of examples. Shumaker shares success stories that culminate in a best practices list.
Each chapter concludes with a reference list for further reading and more details on specific embedded librarian programs. The second part of the book is aptly titled Your Path to Success. This is tremendously helpful for young librarians like myself who are just dipping our toes in the water. Shumaker outlines how to assess your readiness for making the plunge into embedded librarianship.
