If you are teaching a fully online courses , the reality is that you may not be seeing much of your students in person. Although they may be registered in other traditional or blended courses, and have physical access to York’s libraries, they may just as easily be enrolled in your course from another province or even another continent. Below we’ve provided some important information on how you can help your students access library collections and services even if they can’t visit the campus in person:
What we offer now:
- Our existing web pages for both information navigation and intellectual access to all library holdings
- Over 60,000 electronic journals and almost 450 research databases
- Off-campus access to these full-text electronic resources; click here for more information
- Information on how to integrate library resources into Moodle
- Guidelines on how to create permanent links as part of Moodle or other course management system
- E-mail and live chat research assistance
- Student Papers & Academic Research Kit (SPARK) – a series of online modules for students on how to research and write an academic paper.
- Direct borrowing and Inter-library loan (RACER) borrowing services
What we can also work with you to produce:
- a course-related research guide can be created by your subject librarian. This can be used to highlight how the library can help with research for key assignments in your course(s). Take a look here to see the list that exists right now.
- instruction sessions using chat reference/conferencing software
For further information on any of these services, please contact the E-Learning librarian, Adam Taves, Tel: 416 736 2100 ext. 88317.
