Library Support for Blackboard (Courseware Management System)

Faculty and instructors using course management software such as Blackboard can link to licensed library resources and other selected guides that are available to support the campus curriculum. General information is available at the Faculty Development Center.

If you use Blackboard for your courses, be sure to check the "Libraries" tab which offers a starting point for students to explore library resources both campus and system wide.

We encourage you to contact Reference at 581-1673, the Science Center at 581-1691, or contact your library subject specialist to explore customizing library resources for your specific course offerings.

Here are some recommended links to get started:

URSUS icon  Library Catalog URSUS. Search the online catalog for the most comprehensive gateway to library print and electronic resources.

Course guides (developed by librarians partnering with faculty on specific course offerings each semester) and
Subject guides (selected print and internet resources organized by topic).

Library Indexes and Databases - investigate our A-Z list of resources for article level access.  Citations, abstracts and some full text resources are available.
ereserves logo Course Reserves. Place books and articles for your class on reserve with links from your course web site. 
chat icon Ask a Librarian .  Chat and email communication with a Librarian.
