Event Libraries in the Course Management System: Best Practices and New Directions

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Fri, Jun 20, 2014 at 07:37 pm

Course Management Systems (CMS), such as Blackboard, Sakai, Canvas Instructure, and Moodle are ubiquitous in the classroom environment. These systems are bridging the gap between traditional, hybrid, and fully online classes, as most academic institutions have adopted the use of a CMS across a wide spectrum: from serving to keep track of administrative processes, such as grading and attendance, to being the main tool for organizing and communicating course information for both faculty and students.

Course Management Systems (CMS), such as Blackboard, Sakai, Canvas Instructure, and Moodle are ubiquitous in the classroom environment. These systems are bridging the gap between traditional, hybrid, and fully online classes, as most academic institutions have adopted the use of a CMS across a wide spectrum: from serving to keep track of administrative processes, such as grading and attendance, to being the main tool for organizing and communicating course information for both faculty and students. Libraries have responded by implementing a variety of services in the CMS, including LibGuides, chat widgets, discovery search tools, and more. Three academic library panelists will highlight their experiences and efforts to integrate research services into the CMS. We will engage the audience in a group discussion of best practices, assessment, and project management tips for implementing a robust library presence in the CMS environment. The attendees will benefit from exploring the challenges and advantages of integrating library services into university-wide systems and platforms.
