Librarians use LibGuides to create tailored, publicly available guides that provide information and links to subject or class specific resources. Guides can be found on the Library’s LibGuides page. For faculty, these guides provide a customized web-based resource for your classes, an online space available to your students 24/7 for research instruction, and a way to incorporate a Librarian and/or library resources into your courses. Librarians are available to create course-specific and subject-specific guides to assist your students in meeting your course goals and their research needs.
Librarians are also available to contribute to the development of your eLearn course sites. Librarian collaboration in eLearn can range from providing a static Library Resources area with research tips and links to course-specific databases, to content creation for research skills development, to online office hours and feedback on student discussion boards, bibliographies, or other research materials. To include a librarian in your course as a content creator, she or he needs to be granted the role of Teaching Assistant or Instructor.
To request a LibGuide or library eLearn content, contact your Subject Liaison.
The Flynn DisCo (Discovery and Collaboration Space), located on the first floor of the library, is our high-tech classroom, renovated in 2014. This space allows for numerous teaching possibilities using computers, tablets and iPads. The room is equipped with Air Media for wireless presentations that can be displayed simultaneous on 4 HD televisions and 2 projection screens. Faculty may reserve the room for class presentations, but no semester-long reservations can be accepted. At times when no classes are scheduled, members of the Stonehill community may use the room. For more information about the technology or to reserve the Flynn DisCo, contact the Reference desk at extension 1203.
