You may have noticed when you login to Moodle 2 that there is a “Library Resources” block on the right side of the screen.
You can also add this block to your Moodle course(s); benefits include:
- Easy access to course reserves; library catalog, account, and databases; and other library services
- If you have worked with me (or another subject librarian) to create a research guide for your course, students will have direct access to them
- You can easily direct students to library resources without having to find and add additional links in Moodle
Try it out this semester or this summer and let us know how it works for you! The Center for Teaching and Learning has created instructions on how to add the block in Moodle 2, and provides screenshots and descriptions of what you can find through each link. Make sure to contact your subject librarian if you want your course research guide to link to the Library block in your Moodle course(s).
