The LibApps LTI Tool facilitates integration of LibGuides and/or LibGuides e-Reserves material into Blackboard courses in two ways:
With Automagic, there are two options for how the content is presented:
Springshare customers can choose to implement manual integration, Automagic integration, or both.
LibGuides are online guides that libraries use to provide links to information sources, research help and help using library tools and services, information about library collections, and a whole host of other things. They are sometimes focused on specific student assignments, courses, or topics.
e-Reserves "courses" are collections of required readings curated by instructors for students in their classes. They are organized by course, and typically placed behind a password login to provide access only for enrolled students.
Both of these platforms are products from the vendor Springshare, who offers additional products as well. All Springshare products are managed via the LibApps interface.
To learn more about how Springshare platforms are used at your institution, contact your library and ask to speak with the LibApps admin(s) for your campus.
