All BU eLearning courses now include a Library Toolkit. Three drop-down menus provide common resources and services, enabling students to conveniently access them.
By embedding Library materials and services to courses in this way, it is hoped that students will make better use of scholarly materials in their assignments and in their overall learning.
BUT WAIT... it gets better! While a standard Toolkit is automatically provided in all courses, the Toolkit can easily be customized to provide links to the most relevant Library resources and services for a particular course.
Standard Library Toolkit
Customized Library Toolkit
In the example of a customized Toolkit provided here, the following modifications have been made:
Subject-specific quick look-up resources have been added
General search tools have been replaced with discipline-specific databases
A guide for the citation style used in this course has been included
A link to the Course Reserves for this specific course has been added
Adding course-specific Library resources will make your Toolkit even more useful to your students. Contact us at 3411-2711 or email@example.com to customize your Toolkit for the new semester!
