Fall 2015: What’s New with Moodle? (Part 3)

Library Resources Block

We are excited to introduce the new Library Resources Block for Moodle (pictured above). The block connects your students to a librarian and to library resources right within the Moodle environment. Our goal for creating the block is to provide research support at a student’s point of need.

If you wish to include the block on your site, follow these steps in each course:

  1. Turn editing on
  2. Scroll down, under “Administration” block you will see “Add a Block.”Add a block
  3. Click on the drop-down menu.
  4. Select “Library Resources” under the drop-down menu.
    Select Library Block

The block is added to the bottom on the left-hand column by default. If you wish to move it to a more visible location, grab the cross-hairs with your mouse and drag/drop it to the desired location.

A special thanks goes out to Tom Palazzo who did all the behind-the-scenes work to get this working. We hope you and your students appreciate having the library’s resources and services located within the Moodle environment. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
