    4. 4. Why Put Libraries Content in Online Courses?<br />Students want “just in time” resources that fit within their specific learning context.<br />Embedding Libraries content in the online course puts resources and services at their fingertips.<br />Time after time we hear “I wish I’d known about this when I started my class months ago”.<br />Connects students to expensive UW content, like e-journals, books and research databases, that librarians have carefully chosen.<br />

    13. 13. Product, pricing, promotion and distribution channels of IT Outsource companies? Do you know where I could find this info?<br />As a current extension student (an evening program in sports medicine), how can I access journals from the UW library for research for a paper for this class?<br />How can I get information that is in a book in the library if I&apos;m a distance student? I&apos;m still learning how to use this database, and I admit, I&apos;m not having much luck. If I can find an abstract, do you have services that copy and mail journal articles to my home? <br />I teach an online course for UW Educational Outreach. May I check out books from the UW library system?<br />
