Tutorials and Course Guides
Designing an assignment that incorporates research? Check-in with us. We can update you on any new online resources, as well as point you towards tutorials that will support your students in their research.
A librarian can embed in your online class using the pre-configured "Librarian" role in D2L. Having an embedded librarian allows students to have direct access to a subject specialist through D2L. Embedding may also include librarian-graded assignments in Dropbox, tutorials, and research consultations with students. Depending on the level of embedding, it can be time-intensive. Contact us if you are interested and we will do our best to match your needs with our resources and availability.
We now offer research consultations online and via phone for our online students. Encourage students to make an
appointment for a consultation.

I see students taking more ownership of the literature than ever before, and I have been stunned by the quality of their annotations and literature reviews. I believe this is in large part due to [the librarian’s] conversations with the students…This is the first time that I’ve worked with a librarian in this capacity in the Research Seminar course, and it has been such an excellent experience.
