Library Resources for Online Courses

Your librarians are eager to provide instructional support for your online courses. Here are some examples of what we can do:

  • Develop a specialized library guide for your course or assignments
  • Design targeted instructional videos to help your students with research assignments
  • Provide virtual office hours for research assistance for your students via Collaborate Ultra or Skype
  • Librarian presence in the course discussions (all or preselected discussions)
  • Links in eLearning to library resources, online guides
  • Create specific widgets for eLearning that provide access to our chat or email reference service
  • Create specific widgets for eLearning that will allow students to directly search library resources
  • Assistance finding online resources for students to access
  • Electronic Reserves (including streaming video) can be inserted directly into your eLearning course
  • Provide a synchronous library instruction session for students
  • creating pre- and post-tests to assess students' research skills

Some resources are available for you to include in eLearning right now:

  • General search widgets
