wow, so cool! are faculty allowed to take the course!?
Really! I want to take this course, too!
Is this free like a library, or do students have to pay to see all the ebook in full?
This is amazing (I want to take the course too). Is this libguide available outside the University?
Are libguides available to anyone (through the library)?
Did you build this? Or does the library help you build what you want?
The library builds it with the materials your provide
How about a faculty section of the course?

Shout out to the library staff and librarians!
Debby has retired! : (
As a librarian, I enjoy helping students and faculty
Is it difficult to update libguides, for newly published journal articles for example? (Ditto re. librarians, the heart of the U.)
what is the advantage to using Libguide vs posting PDFs of readings in Blackboard?
Are those readings still subject to copyright?
Natalie—In GPS, it’s crucial because the library will not put material on the libguide unless we have it.
So if the library does not have a book, we can give the book to the library and it will put
material on there. Password protected for fair use and copyright.
To add to Natalie’s question - can students get confused having a lib guide and required material on blackboard? How would you recommend to best combine both?
@Angelica, the LibGuide can be integrated in blackboard - bring it all together
I have a couple of concerns: 1. We have very few librarians left. If there is a rush to build lib guides, won’t we run into a backlog issue?
2. Can we learn to edit the lib guides ourselves so that we do not have to ask a librarian to update as we go?
Meg indeed is AMAZING!!!!
I’ll second that!!
Meg is the BEST!!!
Can Scientific Journals be a part of lib guide?
I could not agree more that working with Meg as a pleasure.
Yeah Meg is the best!!
Our librarians are an incredible resource--we are very fortunate to have them.
@marlowe - Thank you for considering the workload of our hard-working library staff. This remains one of the libraries core functions so we invite faculty to participate. It is true that some of the library services will be scaled back until we can hire more people, but serving the education of our students by supporting our faculty is going to remain a priority.
Plus we expanded Meg’s hours in the spring.
@Julie Nash - Thanks. I get that - just wanting to be aware of the workload involved in this and wondering how much we can share that.
My understanding with copyrights is that is if the library has access to an article or book, we can use it in class and post in blackboard. Is this incorrect?
PELT!! Where even the presenters learn!!
I just want to show our department advising guide: https://libguides.uml.edu/englishadvising/home
Meg: can you please explain the fair use/permission evaluation process. Do items have to be re-approved each semester? Does the library have posted guidelines for faculty regarding percentage usage, repeat usage, etc?
I've encouraged my students to take advantage of JSTOR for writing the final research papers. How could libguide benefit them?
So does this make ebooks free to students because it’s a library book?
Keep those questions coming, and I’ll pose them to Meg after she shows us around a bit!

Most of my students don't want to buy the recommended expensive business analytics quant textbook I use. I always assumed they can read one in the library. Can I get the library to offer student viewing the ebook online as a reference book?
Where can we find the How-To videos?
When ever you are ready for me to talk.
Thank you for this

Margaret - this is an outstanding resource.
How do we find the libguide Margaret talked about - what was it called?
Thanks all! Off to another meeting. I’m so grateful for this workshop and all the PELT offerings.
Thank you for offering this workshop, Keith and Meg.
This is utterly awesome! Thank you all so very much!
Thank you Keith, Margaret, and Meg! This was excellent! So helpful.
Thank you Keith and Meg (and Margaret)! Y’all are awesome!
Thanks so much Keith, Meg, Paula and Margaret! This was great!
