A Resource You Should Know About: Library Tutorials and Guided Tours

A Resource You Should Know About Library Tutorials and Guided Tours

The Library has created and curated over thirty videos and guided tours to help users find resources, get research help, use particular databases, use library technology (such as off-campus database access), and manage citations using Zotero.  Six of the videos assist instructors with embedding library content in Blackboard course shells, create reading lists, and learn more about Open Educational Resources (OER).  Almost all the videos are two-to-five minutes long, and each has a .pdf transcript.  The guided tours present slides and material that allows users to perform searches in side-by-side windows. 

All these videos and guided tours can be embedded directly into papers and Blackboard courses and other online materials for immediate, adjacent access to an assignment. (Find out how to embed library content here.)  You can find writing help with the Online Writing Lab (OWL), you can also point another student to this video (LINK) to learn more how the Online Writing Lab works.  The aim of these videos is to guide you to the right help in the right place at the right time.
