<p>As we move into Week 2 of the spring semester, you may be asking students to complete their first assignments. If your assignments involve conducting research, evaluating information, citing sources, or more, the MC Library can help.</p>
<p>We have partnered with ELITE to integrate three library tools into every Blackboard course at MC. With these tools you can:</p>
<li>Help Your Students Save Money with Library Course Reserves: This tool lists course-related materials that you as the faculty member have requested for your students through the MC Library. Faculty can use the tool to request that course-related items, like textbooks, journal articles, book chapters, and more, be placed on reserve in the library. Encourage your students to use course reserves and help save them the cost of a textbook.</li>
<li>Help Your Students Complete Assignments with Library Course Pages and Research Guides: Our library course pages, research guides, and research toolkits are mini-websites built by MC librarians to help your students find, evaluate, present, and cite resources for a specific class or on a specific academic subject. These guides are a great way to help your students meet assignment outcomes.</li>
<li>Build Your Students' Skills with Information Literacy Content: Help your students develop skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. This tool enables you to easily pull tutorials, videos, and quizzes, into your Blackboard course. These items cover information literacy concepts like reading a scholarly paper, searching with keywords, debunking fake news, and citing sources. You can select the most relevant tutorials, videos, or quizzes for your outcomes and embed them directly into your Blackboard course for your students to access.</li>
<p>To get help using these tools, <a href="">access our support materials online</a> or <a href="">contact the librarian</a> from your campus who specializes in your subject area for assistance.</p>
