Do you require students to write research papers or use outside sources for discussion posts? Do your students need to use the virtual library to access assigned reading? Would you prefer that students consult scholarly journal articles and expert reference resources, rather than low-quality websites or Wikipedia?
Then consider requesting an embedded librarian for one or more courses and sections.
A librarian can be added to your course as a co-instructor or co-designer in the D2L "librarian" role.
This enables participation in email, discussion groups, and content development, but does not enable access to student grades or quizzes.
