Resource Highlight: Updated Library Orientation Course
The online Library Orientation Course in Canvas has a brand-new look for the new academic year.  The update course now provides an orientation option for each campus and online, so your students can choose the orientation best suited to their location. The updated orientation includes videos, interactive web pages, and embedded quizzes. For faculty who wish to receive confirmation that students have taken the library orientation, there is a submission form at the end that students can complete.  Completed forms will be emailed to the course instructor.

Accommodations Student Testing
The Libraries and Resource Centers provide private study rooms that can be reserved for students with testing accommodations.  In most cases, remote proctoring via cameras is also available.  Faculty who have students with needs for a separate space and/or extra time can take advantage of library and resource center room reservations and proctoring to help facilitate the accommodations.  See the Reservations tab on the library website for room reservations.  Where proctoring is handled by the library staff, information is also available on the location’s homepage.

Library In-services Survey
The library would like to start offering Zoom-based library in-service/training sessions this year.  We have a variety of topic ideas for 30-minute sessions but would greatly appreciate your input!  We would like to offer sessions that are timely and important for our faculty.  Please complete our Library In-Service Topics Survey  and let us know which topics you would be interested in attending or suggest a new topic.
