Connecting the library to Blackboard course sites

Welcome back instructors! Did you know that the library offers research guides in many of the disciplines taught here at TCC? These guides are full of information that can help your students excel, and the good news is that you can put a link to the guide on your blackboard course site by following these step by step instructions.  If you have any questions, call me at 595-7713 and I’ll be happy to assist you.

1.     Go to the library homepage. On the yellow bar of tabs, select research guides. You can search by subject. Select the guide for your discipline.
2.     In another tab, open Blackboard, and go to your course site.
3.     In the course menu section, click on the plus sign. ( Upper left hand corner)
4.     Select web link. Go to the library research guide that you want and cut and paste the web address into the URL section of the add web link box in Blackboard. You will need to name your link and check the box to make it available to all users. Then hit the submit button. You should see the new item in your course menu section.
