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!

What kind of resources can I include in my school's LMS?

Most learning management systems have a lot of flexibility - the sky's the limit! Here are a few suggestions:

  • Text
  • Links
  • Widgets
  • Videos
  • RSS feeds
  • Frequently asked questions
  • Appointment schedulers
  • And more!

Ways To Share

Each learning management system works differently, but there are three basic methods that you can use to share information from Springshare products. 

We provide examples of different types of resources you can share with each method!
