The Big Idea
Why should I include library resources in my school's learning management system (LMS)?
- At many schools, students visit the LMS website more than they visit any other website - even Facebook!
You can provide information at the exact point of need.
Problem: An instructor created an assignment that requires students to find scholarly articles on a specific topic.
Solution: You help him embed a list of library databases - right into the assignment!
