  • Learn more about how to incorporate Library resources into your class

  • Learn what services and resources the Library has to support your teaching

  • Become more “green” and have the Library digitize handouts and readings

    If you want to learn about any/all of these, in a relaxed atmosphere, this is the session for you!


WHAT: Specifically, these sessions will cover useful tips on:

  • How to provide links to one of the Library’s thousands of e-books or tens of thousands of electronic journals for your courses;

  • What you need to do to provide easy, copyright-compliant electronic access (“e-reserves”) to your course readings;

  • How to integrate Library resources (including a Librarian!) into your BlackBoard pages;

  • The “basics” of Interlibrary loan, Refworks, e-reserves, etc.

All in a comfortable atmosphere, where any question you might have is appropriate. And, refreshment WILL be provided!


WHAT ELSE? That’s it! No prep required! (If you DO want to RSVP, call x4821, or email , but it’s not a requirement).
