This paper (which appears as a chapter in the book Virtually Embedded: The Librarian in an Online Environment, c 2014) details the Central Michigan University Libraries' experiences with embedding library school graduate students from San Jose State University into CMU graduate classes. The graduate students were trained, mentored, and supervised by CMU librarians as they served as embedded librarians  for a semester. The experience allowed the CMU Libraries to extend its reach into online classes and the SJSU students to gain valuable professional experience.
