Description

Working in conjunction with other key campus stakeholders, the University of Alberta Libraries has developed a customizable Library Resources widget that makes it easier for students to access valuable library resources at their place and point of need within their online course management system (CMS). This seamless integration of library resources and services into online courses represents a time-saving enhancement for faculty and students as well as a springboard to information literacy learning within the virtual classroom environment. We will outline the project history and describe how this initiative grew from a department-based project into a campus-wide model with an emphasis on scalability, customization, and collaboration. Building relationships beyond the library is vital for the success of initiatives which require campus-wide adoption. We will elaborate on the mutual benefits of these relationships and consider future directions to further our online presence.
