Embed a Librarian in Your Course

To embed (add a librarian) to your Blackboard course the process should be initiated with the Instruction Coordinator.

Contact Michael Saar via phone 880-2135 or email: to arrange for a librarian for your class.

Once you have a librarian's username all you need to do is enroll them in your Blackboard course as a Teaching Assistant.

An embedded librarian can be utilized to create course specific tutorials, videos or library instruction or respond to research related questions via discussion or email.  The embedded librarians will typically contact you to discuss how you envision their role in the course.
