Libguides

The Libguide content management system is a convenient online publishing platform designed to connect you with scientific and scholarly resources for teaching and research. 

Supported by the Library, the Libguides platform lets you discover, create, and share content essential to your teaching, programs, and research.  

In addition to standard web publishing tools, Libguides contains many features designed to deliver library resources directly to you and your students. Libguides can be added to your menu in Blackboard, so your Libguides run seamlessly inside your online class.

For Your Courses

The library offers its Libguide platform (also branded as the LearningForce application) to all faculty, staff and students.  Working collaboratively with faculty from a course syllabus, assignment, term project, program, task, or skillset specification, the library team will collect, catalog and preserve videos, tutorials, podcasts, documents, readings, tips, contacts, and links that are then published to the Libguide/LearningForce platform and shared in a timely manner with students.  These materials can be synchronized to match course and program dates, through a Blackboard-embedded website.

The LearningForce is delivered via Libguides such as this one.
