Blackboard Library Resources Tool: Home

Intro

The Library Resources tool in Blackboard allows you to add easily customized library content to your Blackboard course page. Want to direct students to the library for their research needs? Or have your students contact librarians for their research help expertise? The Library Resources tool can help you do both of these things.

The Library Resources tool page has the following information:

  • A link to a library Research Guide, if one is available for this discipline.
  • A link to a Database List. This list will be filtered to the appropriate subject (such as Business or Music) is that's available for the discipline.
  • An Appointment Scheduler, so that students can easily make an appointment for research help. 
  • Today's Library Hours, which include the building's hours as well as hours for chat assistance. 
  • A Chat Box, so that students can instant message librarians for research help right from their Blackboard course page. 
  • A list of Subject Librarians, if one is available for this discipline.

Cross-Listed Section Classes

Important Note

If you add the Library Resources Tool to Cross-Listed Section classes, you will not see a customized version of the tool. There is currently no work-around for this situation.

The tool can still be helpful to these classes, but it won't have subject-specific content like Research Guides and Subject Librarians.
