Library Resources for Course Development

There is a library link on Isidore, where you and students can schedule a research appointment, chat with a librarian, connect to the library website, and add a research guide or two to this page.




In addition to course-specific research guides, the library has created guides on related writing and research topics.  These guides can be embedded within a syllabus or on your Isidore page.

The library offers several streaming video services, including Kanopy.  The College of Arts & Sciences also underwrites streaming videos (usually major motion pictures) via the Swank subscription.  See your Porches website to request titles available from Swank.

If there is a film that you had hoped to show in your class but no longer can, we can search our digital content providers to see if the film is available to add to your class Isidore site. Email Chris Tangeman at with the film title and the course and section numbers.
