Hybrid and Online Course Support

Research support isn't limited to the physical classroom. The expertise of our research librarians is available for online and hybrid coursework, where librarians can demonstrate resources, provide feedback on topics and help students reach their goals.  We offer two levels of support for online and hybrid courses. 

Tier 1 Support

The Kathryn A. Martin Library can quickly provide the following resources for courses with online components:

    • Information on finding relevant books and articles for the subject.
    • A listing of databases specific to the discipline and field.
    • Tutorials and links for citing sources, using inter-library loan and Get It!
  • Instructions on how to add the Library Moodle box, which provides quick access to chat service, and to our library catalog

Tier 2 Support

With preparation and meetings with your subject librarian, additional library elements can be developed, including:

  • creating and development of online assignments and tutorials that can help students understand key research concepts
  • the purchase of digital materials for the course and curation of permalinks of scholarly articles, data-sets and other proprietary sources
  • demonstrations on how to permalink and embed articles, videos and other content
  • participating in discussion forums to assist students with topic organization, keywords, resource location, and more.
  • providing an online instruction session with web-cams and screen sharing. These sessions can asynchronous or live.
