Objectives: As strategic education partners and leaders, library faculty can help improve an institution’s education programs, leading to improved student learning experiences. This paper presents strategies for librarians to embrace their role at an academic medical center by growing expertise in teaching modalities, becoming an integral member of campus education teams, and leading inquiry and research-focused curriculum change objectives.

Methods: Academic medical librarians have distinct opportunities to serve clinical faculty beyond their biomedical information and research needs. At one institution, librarians leveraged their university committee service to gain appointments on teams that steer education and learning: the College of Medicine curriculum redesign group, a newly formed teaching academy, and a faculty development committee. Librarians recognized opportunities, built relationships, improved their own skill sets, accepted the challenges of the new roles, and sharpened their professional contributions as faculty members in each of their roles. These three case studies highlight experiences of faculty librarians as partners within an institution's education infrastructure and describe outcomes beneficial to the campus community. Benefits for the librarians include increased confidence, deepening one’s relationship with the campus culture, and moving towards integration into Interprofessional programs.
