Integrating Library Resources into the Course Development Process at an Online College

Anita Norton, Johns Hopkins University

Electronic resources and librarians services must reach out to a broad spectrum of populations in academic settings. In an effort to promote use of library resources and services, the librarians for Excelsior College have produced a way of increasing usage of both the services and resources through course integration. This model of systematically integrating library services and resources into online courses will be addressed in this presentation. The presentation will demonstrate how to collaborate with course developers and instructional designers at the point where the course is being designed. Examples of how librarians can initiate partnerships within the academic institution; manage the workflow of requested projects; manage expectations; and ultimately market services will be discussed.

Anita Norton is with the Entrepreneurial Library Program, Distance Education Library Coordinator, Johns Hopkins University
