Incorporating Library Content

Instructors (and the instructional designers they work with) can incorporate library content into Blackboard and other web pages to provide access for their students. These resources can be subscription journal articles, ebooks, streaming media, and more.

Textbook Affordability

The Library provides a number of services and resources to help reduce the amount of money students must spend on textbooks. Note that the library does not purchase textbooks and students cannot request textbooks through interlibrary loan.

Modifying or Creating OER

The Library OER Guide maintains a list of resources to help those creating or modifying OER, including ensuring that course materials are accessible.

Subject Liaison Librarians

Library faculty work as liaisons with specific departments, programs, and schools. Subject liaison librarians provide the following for the areas they specialize in.

  • Library, research, and information literacy instruction.
  • Research consultations to students and faculty.
  • Library materials for teaching and research.
  • Curriculum and accreditation support.

Get Help With Research

Instructors may wish to link to the Library's Get Help page (or specific links on that page) in their courses as a supplement to library instruction.
