For Instructors

Schedule a Class Presentation
The library has many quality sources of informaiton that can be useful for resesarch assignments. Consider scheduling a session or workshop specifically for your class to introduce students to key databases and collections for their class assignments. Library subject liaisons can help integrate research skills to improve competencies in finding, searching, evaluating, and managing information.

Create Links to Articles in Moodle
Instructors are very interested in creating links to articles from databases, e-books, and e-journals that are licensed by the library. These links can be included in your syllabus and often listed in Moodle. For more information on creating feeds and linking to library resources, see Moodle: Integrating Library Resources.

Electronic and Print Reserves at the Library
The Library Reserve Staff will create online links to articles, book chapters, and digitize publications for online access. Simply email your list of class readings and the library staff will be a protected e-reserve list that displays via the Library Course Page. Print materials such as copies of your textbooks or other materials can also be placed on reserve at the Circulation Desk of Wilson Library.

Media Services
The library has a collection of DVDs available for instructors to reserve for their classes. If there is a video you need for instructional purposes, please contact the librarian for your department. Interested in having students produce multi-media? The Smart Learning Commons at Walter Library supports student media production with equipment, software and consultations.
