Faculty Resources: Widgets

This page was created specifically for faculty. Use this guide to find tips for creating effective library assignments, book your library instruction classes and find links to useful library resources.

Widgets

What are they and why should I use them?

A widget is a small piece of html code that places a dynamic element into your webpage from another source.  Here the widgets are exclusively search boxes for library materials.  Other types of widgets include clocks, stock tickers and weather forecasts.

Our search widgets allow you to place our library pages right where your students are!  Copy and paste the HTML code into any ANGEL page.  To learn how to embed HTML code into ANGEL please read and follow the directions posted here.

For additional help or customized widgets contact:  Sara Klink, sklink@starkstate.edu  Ext: 5449
