I want to make articles available electronically for my students. What are my options?
1. You can link to e-content using the library reserves module if the article is in one of the library databases. E-mail Louise Hyder-Darlington. Material could then be accessed from anywhere. Or use the linking information available on the “Faculty Services” page to make links for your syllabus or Blackboard (this material would not be available from off-campus, however).
2. You can make the article or chapter available via Blackboard. Technically, this is viable the first time you do it for each course. Repeated use would necessitate obtaining copyright permissions. Also available from anywhere.
3. You can post material in a class folder. (First-time only, as with Blackboard, applies.) Request a class folder from ITS. This is preferable to posting in your public folder. (Available on campus only.)
4. You can always provide links to material that already exists on the Web, such as books available via bartleby.com or www.gutenberg.org.
If this does not completely answer your question, please contact Sylvia Morra for further assistance.
