Nursing Faculty Resources: Welcome Faculty

Embed a Lbrarian in Brightspace

There are a variety of ways that you can embed a Librarian into your Brightspace course!

  • Include your Librarian in the Email Roster so that students can access library help with just one click.      [Good option.]
  • Feature a direct link to the Library home page in your course menu or provide students with a link to the library guide for their course. This gives them quick access to databases and video tutorials! [Even better.]
  • Give the Librarian a role in your Brightspace course that allows access to syllabi, discussion boards, and assignments. This helps the Librarian know the exact nature of assignments and due dates. [Everybody wins!]
  • Collaborate with a Libraran to develop a new library guide, instructional session, or video tutorial that is customized for help with an assignment. [Teamwork at it's best!]

Each semester the Nursing Librarian is embedded in 80+ nursing classes. Join the ranks! Contact the Library or OIT for more information on embedding a Librarian in your Brightspace course.
