How I Can Help

As Online Learning Librarian, I create Digital Learning Objects (such as Canvas modules, video tutorials, infographics, and handouts) on information literacy topics and manage the Library's presence in Canvas. I can help faculty integrate library resources into their Canvas courses, or develop new content that is specific to their students' needs.
