Your librarian can collaborate with you to create a LibGuide with specific resources for a class or assignment. Students can access this from anywhere, and it can integrate easily into Canvas as well. Some examples include:
In the current online and video-teaching environment, library instruction can happen three ways:
1. For ONLINE Classes: work with your liaison librarian on embedding a custom research module into your course.
2. For Video Conference/Remote Courses: a "live" library session with your class via Zoom, which would closely mirror an in-person library session.
3. Individual meetings with a librarian: this works best for upper level courses with a substantial research project; you can require that your students meet with a librarian at some point during their research process. Librarians can meet with students via Zoom or telephone.
Have an assignment you need to adjust? Are you dissatisfied with the research your students produce? Do you want to be sure your students use library resources but aren't sure how to get them there?
Collaborate with your liaison librarian while you rework a lesson or assignment to incorporate information literacy concepts.
Review these guidelines for editing your research assignment.
Embedding a librarian into your Canvas course has multiple advantages to you and your students:
1. It connects library resources to students as needed.
2. Provides the space for librarians to interact with students regarding their research assignments.
3. Gives librarians access to suggest, promote, and facilitate the inclusion of library resources.
Librarian involvement can be customized to your needs. Some examples include:
