Integrating Library Content into Blackboard 8  [replaced by Libguide]

Instructions for Blackboard 9 will be posted later this fall. Make it easier for your students to find and use scholarly library resources by adding links to those resources on your Blackboard page. Remember, you can always ask your Subject Librarian for help. There are three ways to include library items in your course.
  1. Use existing library links under “Resources Tab in all Blackboard courses.
  2. Create a “Library Resources” button and then add library links to that content area.
  3. Embed links to individual articles, books, services etc. into existing parts of your course.
