Blackboard and the Library
The library has its own tab, embedded into every student's page!
Embed a Librarian
About this program: Did you know you can insert contact information for your campus librarian into your course's blackboard page? This allows students to get in touch with a librarian who is particularly familiar with your assignments and expectations.
Simply contact the librarian of your choice to make arrangements for the Embed a Librarian Program

What we do
Your library has the ability to create library research guides (Libguides) customized to your course. These guides contain useful information for your students which includes book, database and online resource suggestions, search techniques, information on plagiarism, citation information and much more.
Who to contact
Interested in having a course guide made up for your course? Speak with the librarian assigned to course's instruction session or contact the reference department at your campus library.
All faculty members have the ability to put textbooks, videos and other course support materials on reserve at the library. This is an especially advantageous service for students with limited funds.

When to Schedule your Instruction Session
Instruction sessions are always more effective when in context to a particular assignment or course activity. A good rule of thumb is to schedule your class 2 to 4 weeks before your assignment is due.
Be sure to hand out your assignment to your students before your instruction session.
What to do before your session
Schedule your class: Always be sure to set up an instruction session with the campus contact listed above before you bring your class to the library. Space is limited; we suggest you make arrangements with us before the semester begins or during its first week.
Give us your Syllabus or Assignment: This information will help us tailor our instruction to your class.
Contact your Instructor: Please feel free to contact your course's library instructor before your class's session with any questions, concerns or special requests. We are here to support you!
