Library Resources in Blackboard
Every Blackboard course contains a "Library Resources Link" (see below), directing your students to some of our basic resources and services. Students can also chat directly with a librarian from this page, using our chat widget. This is currently available on all course templates. You do not need to do anything to make these resources available to your students.

Each course also has a "LIB Resources" page (see below) with subject specific library information for your students. You do not need to do anything to make these resources available to your student
