Reaching the Masses through Your Content Management System
Using your institution's content management system to distribute a module on the library's resources creates an effective venue for reaching students. Our goal was to get the word out about our resources and teach our students a few techniques about searching by using our institution's course management system. We created a Desire2Learn (D2L) module for release to all faculty consisting of short films and documents about the library as well as websites of interest. If the professor decides to incorporate the module into their course site, it becomes part of the course's class content. We are currently monitoring 67 courses.
