With the continuing trend toward university courses being offered online, there is corresponding need for academic librarians to support students in those digital spaces. We developed a sustainable model for embedding librarians to provide research support in online courses, and then investigated the impact we were having on student learning outcomes and what students and faculty think about our efforts. This paper outlines our model and presents survey feedback from students combined with user data from our course management system (CMS) to discuss how well we are doing and how this evidence can inform our embedded librarian service going forward.This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published in INTERNET REFERENCE SERVICES QUARTERLY on 15 August 2014, Available online: http://www.tandfonline.com/10.1080/10875301.2014.917756
