Supporting Online Instruction

The University Libraries are here to support your instruction while classes are being conducted online. Our subject librarians remain available to work with faculty to deliver instruction on information literacy and research practices, including through the use of Zoom for group instruction and individual consultations with students via MU Connect, and to ensure that materials are made available through our e-reserves system.

  • Instructional Resources: A collection of tutorials, videos, modules and more, created and curated by MU librarians. Faculty in need of instructional resources tailored to their individual needs can place a request for new materials through the Instructional Resources page.
  • MERLOTOER Commons, and CORA: These repositories connect instructors with a variety of open educational resources, such as videos, modules and assignments that instructors can use.
  • Resources for Moving Writing Intensive (WI) Classes Online: While compiled with WI faculty in mind, this list curated by MU’s Campus Writing Program will be of interest to all instructors who are transitioning to online teaching.
