Library Services for Remote Teaching
Randall Library is committed to supporting faculty who are teaching remotely by connecting you with electronic resources and library faculty/staff expertise.
Connect with Your Liaison Librarian
Your liaison librarian is here to help you figure out a plan to connect your students to the resources and tools they need to be successful in your remote class. For assistance with any of the below topics, or for any other questions, find your liaison librarian here.
Your liaison librarian can help you:
- Locate streaming videos or e-books in the collection
- Locate open educational resources
- Request new streaming videos or e-books to add to our collection
- Provide synchronous or asynchronous virtual information literacy instruction
- Develop research assignments that rely on electronic resources
- Set up individual remote research consultations with your students
Access Electronic Resources
Randall Library provides access to a large quantity of high-quality e-books, streaming videos, and other digital resources that you can use in your teaching. Take a look at the following guides to get started, and don't forget to contact your liaison librarian for further assistance.
