Webinars on Demand

If you would like a webinar customized for your course, please let me know and we can design something that will meet your class requirements.  I can record these webinars for students who cannot attend. Please contact me directly to arrange for a webinar. A  two-week lead time is appreciated.

Research Help

Students are welcome to contact me with research questions or questions about using the library resources and services in general. Feel free to include a link to this guide or my contact information on your course syllabus or Canvas site.

Linking to library sources

You can link to online articles for the library databases by creating a persistent link. A persistent link, also known as a durable, stable, or permanent link, is a URL that connects directly to a specific full-text article in a library database or electronic journal subscription. Persistent links can be placed within the LMS, syllabi and readings lists. They allow students to access articles by linking directly to OSU Libraries' electronic subscriptions.

Custom Research Guides

Librarians can make custom research guides for your class. Research guides help direct students to the best resources and provide guidance on how to conduct effective research. They are highly customizable to reflect your course learning outcomes. Please see our LibGuides page for examples. Contact me for more information. A two-week lead time is appreciated.
