Library Services Fall 2020

Course Reserves and Open Educational Resources

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the JKM Library will not be offering physical course reserve services for the Fall 2020 semester. For alternatives, we suggest that you:

  • Learn more about Open Educational Resources (OERs) and how to incorporate them into your courses on our OER guide.
  • Consider making smaller portions of the resources available virtually, such as a book chapter in lieu of the whole book.
  • Find e-resources through our library databases and use the directions below (in the Linking Content to Brightspace box) to create direct links you can use in BrightSpace.
  • Reach out to your liaison librarian (see Library Liaisons box below to find yours) for ideas of alternative resources you could use.

Schedule a Virtual Instruction Session

Librarians are always eager to work with faculty to help students understand the depth and breadth of the resources available to them. To schedule a virtual library instruction session contact your library liaison. Instruction sessions can include, but are not limited to:

  • How to use the library catalog to locate books
  • How to use the library databases 
  • Crafting an effective search strategy
  • How to focus a topic
  • Writing proper citations
  • Evaluating information

Librarians can provide instruction through Brightspace and Zoom, as well as offer pre-recorded library tutorial videos. Work with your library liaison to craft the perfect virtual instruction session for your class.
