In 2012, the University of San Francisco's School of Management underwent a monumental change in both location and student access to academic services. In that year, all classes and most staff and student services for the MBA and other business graduate programs were relocated to a new site near the Financial District, which is across the city from the main campus. Suddenly, a major group of my service population was no longer on campus near me or near the library! In this poster, I will describe the process I undertook to remain visible and accessible to this important group of students, staff, and faculty. In a fortunate turn of events, the work to re-establish my services with our graduate business students combined my concern about remaining connected to them with a professional passion of mine, embedded librarianship. In this poster, I’ll summarize the process, including what worked well, what didn’t, the kinds of feedback I’ve received and how it has been incorporated, the other services that have resulted from my outreach efforts, as well as hopes for the future.
