Support for teaching
The key Library goals in supporting teaching are:
- to build sustainable resources and digital infrastructure to support expanding modes of teaching, learning, research and scholarly communication
- to expand and strengthen the Library’s educational impact through collaborative partnerships.
Faculty Librarians are key team members for achieving these goals. They facilitate communication between the Library and each Faculty to match services and resources to academic requirements. Your Faculty Librarian can also provide support and training on information skills; assistance locating resources for teaching; advice on embedding resources and information skills into iLearn subject sites.
To meet copyright and licensing obligations, book chapters and journal articles must be managed by the Library rather than uploaded directly to iLearn. The Library provides a Resource List service that plugs in directly to your subject sites in iLearn.
Resource Lists are a consistent way that students can access and engage with the resources you recommend to them, including textbooks, videos, reports, articles and website links. Online and streaming video content can be added to your resource lists. This includes licensed Library content as well as video sourced from online sites such as Vimeo and Youtube.
Check out these online guides to using the system.
