Online & Hybrid Students' Guide to Library Resources

This is a collection of library and research resources for students enrolled in online courses at SUNY Brockport.

For Instructors

Link to Database Articles

You can provide stable, persistent links to accessible versions of journal articles and other items available through the library's databases. This will allow your students to access the article directly from your course in Blackboard. 

If you are interested in doing so, please review the instructions to do so on the Link to Library Database Articles guide.

If you have any questions about this, please Ask a librarian.

About integrating library services into Blackboard

Blackboard is one of the many ways you can integrate the library into your class.

For more information about how the library supports online and hybrid students, visit Online & Hybrid Course Support Guide.  

Library Research Guides in Blackboard

Your course has a “Library Resources” link in the left-hand navigation. You and your students will see the best library Research Guide for your course.

If you notice that a key resource is not included on that page, please let us know.

About Information Literacy Modules

Modules you can embed into your Blackboard course!

Our library has subscribed to a collection of Information Literacy Modules. These online tutorials can help students learn information literacy skills that are important for their success as Brockport students. We have two types of Information Literacy Modules:

Openly Licensed Modules

Other Information Literacy Modules

These modules are available for anyone to use. They can be used or adapted under a Creative Commons license.

Tips for planning a research assignment

  1. Design "applied" assignments.
  2. Students will find the library assignments more meaningful if they use the retrieved information for a task related to topics covered in the course.
  3. Teach research strategies where appropriate.
  4. Students often do not have the research skills that experienced researchers have.
  5. Provide students with resource lists.
  6. List specific information sources or types of sources for a particular assignment so that students have a starting point. Remember that many of our scholarly articles are accessible through the Internet, but that they are not necessarily Internet resources.
