Library Instruction Sessions - We are working on options for delivering library instruction virtually. Contact the library teaching coordinator (email@example.com) or your disciplinary library liaison (see listing on the liaison page of this guide).
Textbook Readings - Please remember that, due to campus closure, students no longer have access to the textbooks in the Library's Reserve Collection.
Upload chapters of your commercial textbook to Blackboard - you can scan individual chapters that will be required for your course, and upload these to Blackboard for your students. NOTE: you may upload only one chapter at a time, and take down the previous chapter before posting a new reading. Check out the Library's Reserve Scanning Project
