Career Center
Thomas Cooper Library, Level 5


The library offers many services to help you create online coursepacks that are completely free for your students to access and can be easily integrated into Blackboard. Join us to learn about how the library can add scans or links to course readings in Blackboard's Content Collection, assisting you with copyright and accessibility concerns, with the simple submission of your syllabus. We’ll also provide an overview of our print and electronic textbook collection and share several ways that we can help you locate and adopt freely available content, including open educational resources. Specific information that will be covered includes copyright basics, a content licensing overview, accessibility basics, library services and programs and library grants.
