Library Course Tools pages include:

  • E-Reserves for your course
  • Article databases
  • Recommend resources
  • IM a Librarian for help
  • Citation Tools, including the Citation Builder
  • and more…

Library Course Tools pages can be customized. Please contact us if you’d like to tailor a Library Course Tools page to a specific assignment or other course needs.

You can incorporate Library Course Tools into your online course materials in two ways:

  • Moodle – a Library Course Tools “block” is available in Moodle.
  • Course Websites – you can insert a link to the Library Course Tools page for your course right into your course website.

Visit the our website for more information or to access Library Course Tools.

Please contact us if you’d like to customize your pages or have questions about this service.

  • Click on the “alert” or “RSS” links on the database results pages. You may need to save your search or view your search history in order to access these features.
  • You will be asked to create a free account with the database provider.
