Library Resources

From the Distance Learning Librarian:

Because the HyFlex model includes a fully online course experience as a possibility, I recommend using online resources as much as possible. That might include OER, Open Access, Library subscribed resources (start here or ask your Subject Librarian), eReserves, or student purchased online materials. Most likely, it will be some combination of the above.


Library instruction can be some combination of:

  • Asynchronous guides and tutorials, including videos.
  • Live online demos, which can be recorded, to replace in-class demos.
  • Small group screensharing, which could replace working sessions, though more of them would need to be scheduled. (i.e. Instead of 1 class of 30, schedule 6 groups of 5 students. The sessions don’t have to be as long as a full class, especially if paired with asynchronous demos. Just some time for students to ask questions and try live searches with a librarian.) Students can “check in” via SSC Navigate for credit if desired.
  • Individual online appointments (chat, video). Students can “check in” via SSC Navigate for credit if desired.
  • Asynchronous individual interactions by email.
  • Worksheets and other assignments can be designed in Blackboard or LibWizard (library tutorial platform).
