Description

What began as librarians working to embed library resources into Web CT has evolved into a partnership with The Educational Technology department to help train librarians and faculty to go beyond simply providing library links. Librarians are being trained to create learning modules, to teach faculty how to create persistent URLs and to be present in their faculty’s online courses. Librarians are creating the “Librarian’s Corner,” a learning module that is integrated into the online course and that is tailored with information for that particular course. The basic “Librarian’s Corner” can be a place that students click on to see the librarian; to get the contact information or a few relevant library links; a place to chat with the librarian; or to learn what’s new at the library.
