Be where your users are: libraries in content management systems
Academic institutions acquire and use content or learning management systems for online teaching and learning. Faculty and students log into their CMS daily to peruse readings, check schedules, turn in assignments, and connect with content. Integrating library resources, both librarian expertise and materials, into the CMS enables users to connect with the library without leaving the ‘classroom’ the CMS provides. This session will cover different approaches to embedding librarians and library content into the CMS using examples with Sakai, and open source content management system. Use of CMS tools for instruction, reference, and communication will be addressed as well as different options for creating or interacting with course sites will be covered.
