Integrate Library Resources

There are many ways to integrate the large variety of resources available through the library into your courses or other teaching environments.


Do you want to embed a stable, persistent link to an article, video or e-book from within a library database?

Consult How to Get Permalinks to Library Journal Articles and Other Database Items for database-specific steps.

Also, view Grab a Permalink for an EBSCOHost database article (video tutorial).

Instructional Design

The librarians can also work with faculty members and/or course developers on several other aspects of instructional design:

  • integrating help/tutorials, learning objects, and other assignment-scaffolding materials into courses
  • recommending or creating customizable help text for assignments
  • providing embeddable videos, Ask a Librarian chat widgets or database search widgets or other learning objects to help students grasp various research concepts
  • getting direct access to library resources and services

The librarians can also work directly with you on ground-up research assignment design.

Contact Dana Longley, assistant director for library instruction and information literacy, with inquiries, questions, or ideas for collaboration.
