Faculty Course Support: Library Distance Education Services

As the Distance Education Librarian I can:

  • Create for you, or point you to, existing library tutorials and guides that meet the needs of students in your course and can be embedded into Blackboard. Want a Library Guide like this for your course or a tutorial like this? Contact me

  • Answer your library services and research questions

  • Direct you to appropriate library services tailored to Distance Education like Interlibrary Loan to request books not owned by Mason and artilces not full text online.

  • Assist you in locating content such as articles, books, book chapters, e-books and films that support your course needs

  • Guide you in the process of embedding library resources, including multimedia, into your Blackboard courses online

  • Collaborate to create meaningful research assignments that meet your student learning outcomes and utilize library resources effectively

  • In collaboration with your liaison librarian, provide online or in-person instruction to your students using tools such as Blackboard Collaborate which is available for use in any Blackboard course under "course tools"

  • In collaboration with your liaison librarian, provide online or by phone, one-on-one and group research consultations for students in your course

  • Answer library related research questions and when necessary, guide your students to the appropriate subject librarian for additional assistance
