Library Resources Moodle block
The goal of the Library Resources block is to improve student access to library collections and services by promotion through Moodle, a starting point for many students engaged in coursework.
The Library Resources block automatically displays on the side of all Moodle course sites, adjacent to course content. Content within the block is generated dynamically, and is tailored to the specific Moodle course that the student has logged into. The Library Resources block provides convenient access to course textbooks, librarian recommended research databases and journals, the library catalogue, and more.
Here is an example of what the Library Resources block looks like:
Remember, the content of the Library Resources block will change depending on what Moodle course you are logged into.
