Distance Library Services for Faculty

  • Online Instruction

    IUP Libraries provides a number of customized services for instructors teaching distance learning courses.

    Library instruction can be provided for your online students through the course management system.  Instruction can be delivered asynchronously through videos, tutorials, and handouts, or synchronously using web conferencing software. Library instruction can include topics such as:

    • Identifying peer reviewed material
    • Using databases
    • Citation management
    • Finding resources for research
    • Plagiarism
    • Subject specific resources

    To request library instruction for your online class, complete the Library Instruction Request Form.

    A librarian can also be embedded in your course in D2L and provide ongoing library support for students.  More information on including an embedded librarian in your course is available at the Distance Learning Library Services guide.

    InfoLit Modules

    Over 60 instructional videos, tutorials, and assessments are available from the library on information literacy and critical thinking skills. Topics include choosing a topic, thesis statements, peer review, search techniques, evaluating sources, and academic integrity. Learn more about the InfoLit Modules online at the Information Literacy Resources guide.
