  • Collaboration with Faculty
    LSU Libraries uses a “liaison” model to communicate and collaborate with faculty members
    Often, we send email updates to faculty members and visit classes for brief instruction sessions on library resources
    However, for many of us, the collaboration shouldn’t, and doesn’t, stop at that level
  • Customized Research & Instruction Support
    When LSU librarians visit individual classes for customized instruction sessions or assist researchers with specific questions, the relationship can continue in a variety of ways:
    Subject guides
    Moodle tools
    Wikis
    Blogs
    Podcasts/screencasts
  • Subject Guides
    LSU Libraries has subject guides devoted to discipline-specific resources and help http://www.lib.lsu.edu/weblio.html
    While these guides are in various stages of being updated, many offer direct connection to the subject librarian and the resources that she/he recommends
    These guides can be linked into Moodle pages, or put on a course syllabus
  • Moodle Tools & Community Courses
    When a librarian visits the class, she/he often creates a presentation or helpsheet that can be posted in Moodle
    Likewise, he/she can create quiz files, related to the lesson, that will import directly into a Moodle course
    If he/she is added to the course, he/she can create a librarian “discussion forum” that continues the library discussion
    Additionally, the librarian can keep posting helpful hints and/or resources for specific assignments, since he/she has already been working with that particular class
  • Wikis
    Wikis are websites that are quickly and easily created and maintained
    Because of this ease of creation, collaboration, and maintenance, wikis are particularly well suited for creating course-specific help material
    Currently, several librarians use PBWorks, which is one of many free wiki software available
    http://huec1021.pbworks.com/
  • Blogs
    Many librarians host blogs for their particular subject areas
    These blogs highlight resources, update their departments on library happenings, and offer research help
    Example: Businesshttp://lsulibrariesbus.blogspot.com/
  • Podcasting/Screencasting
    LSU Libraries has recently started creating digital tutorials using Adobe Captivate to aid students, faculty, and researchers in using library resources.
    The Business subject guide currently hosts a podcast on finding articles in the Wall Street Journal: http://www.lib.lsu.edu/instruction/tutorials/business/wsj/index
    The Libraries are also working on screencasts for general databases:
