Description

Cornell University Library and Cornell Information Technologies have completed two phases of integrating Library resources and services into Blackboard. In phase I we added links to the Library Gateway and the “Ask a Librarian service” to the main menu of Blackboard. We installed the RefWorks building block that allows BB users to link to specific RefWorks accounts. It also allows instructors to add links to existing RefWorks accounts in any of the Blackboard content areas. Librarians and CIT staff collaborated on teaching the "Blackboard Getting Started" workshops for instructors. Phase II involved the use of BB for managing all Library reserves. Faculty can make Library reserve staff course builders so they can add reserve material to an existing BB course. If an instructor is not using BB the Library will create a BB course and add the reserve material to it.
