Faculty Resources: How to Bring the Library to Your Students

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.


Welcome!  As educational technology moves forward it is supposed to get easier to connect students to the rich, scholarly digital material from libraries.  However, that is often not the case.  Links aren't stable - or they don't work off campus.  Students don't want to type in the urls from a printed paper syllabi or be bothered to leave their online course.    

The tools provided on this page aims to close the gap between the students and library resources by giving you, the faculty, the tools and tricks to embed, link and post the academic content you want your students using. 

For questions or to suggest a new tool please contact your Digital Librarians!
