BGSU continues to make critical decisions to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus in the best interests of our campus community based upon state and federal guidance. Jerome Library is closed, but staff are working remotely to assist you.
We have a newly available Canvas application that allows you to embed a librarian-created LibGuide (course or subject specific library guide) within the Canvas framework. See how to add LibGuides to a Canvas Course below. To view the list of current LibGuides at BGSU, go to: BGSU LibGuides.
This LibGuide application for Canvas is the newest of many ways to embed customized library content into your courses. To find out more, visit http://libguides.bgsu.edu/Canvas. The process is easy, and if you any questions, please contact Rob Snyder at 2-9442 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
If you're looking to teach your students about how to research their topics, we suggest starting with the "Search Strategies" video under the "Search Strategies" tab in this libguide. Then, take a look at the lesson plan and worksheet we've provided below to put those search strategies into practice in the classroom.
Use this lesson and worksheet in conjunction with the "Evaluating Sources" tab in this libguide to teach your students how to evaluate their sources for credibility.
The library offers a variety of quizzes on MLA, APA, general library knowledge, and other subjects that you can use to test your students' knowledge. If you have questions on how to set up the quizzes, contact Rob Snyder at email@example.com.
Use these lessons to help your students get to know the physical library as well as the library's website.
Use this lesson, in conjunction with the video in the "Avoiding plagiarism by finding your voice" box to the left to talk about plagiarism with your students. The video includes information on plagiarism, in-text citations and works cited citations, when to cite, the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarizing, introducing sources, and how to summarize without plagiarizing.
