Library Support for Instruction & Learning: Resources for Faculty

A guide to support online teaching and learning.

About this Guide

This guide has been prepared by librarians to support faculty who are delivering socially-distanced, hybrid, and online instruction. It contains resources grouped by format, including ebooks, videos, online instructional modules, and open educational resources along with information on how to share content from those sources to the learning management system.  For assistance with any of the resources on this page, contact the library at 478-445-4047, ask@gcsu.libanswers.com or by using the chat widget on this guide.

Finding Video for Online Classes

Faculty: Please use the following decision-tree to find streaming video for online classroom environments 

Last updated September 23, 2020 

If you have any questions, please contact your library liaison or email the Scholarly Communication Librarian, Jennifer Townes, at jennifer.townes@gcsu.edu

 

1. Search Kanopy, AVON, and Films on Demand 

The Library provides faculty with streaming video options for your online courses. Check out the plethora of options already available to you and your students in our Films on Demand and AVON databases, as well as Kanopy options. See the Library’s streaming video guide to learn how you can link to these films in your online courses. 

AVON: search for the film at https://video.alexanderstreet.com/, you may need to log in by selecting Georgia College and entering your Unify credentials. 

Films on Demand: Search the Films on Demand database through Galileo.  

Kanopy: please submit a request form from the Kanopy site (search for the title, click “Request Access”). 

Work with your library liaison to embed videos into D2L or to add them to your course reserves.  

 

2. Search Other Sources 

If your title isn’t available in Kanopy, Films on Demand, AVON, or a commercial streaming service, contact your library liaison to determine if the Library can acquire streaming access from another provider. If so, your liaison will provide you with access instructions. Note that this option is budget-dependent. We may be able to purchase streaming access for additional media, but it does take time to finalize a streaming license, and institutional streaming costs do often exceed our budget constraints. 

 

3. Converting from DVDs 

In very specific cases, excerpting small portions of DVDs via screen capture software may be allowed for use in certain educational settings. However, the Library is unable to offer this service at this time.  

 

Instructional Modules

Credo Information Literacy modules are online tutorials to help students learn foundational information literacy skills. Credo provides a supplemental way for students to asynchronously complete foundational lessons on a wide range of topics such as getting started with research, to finding credible sources and recognizing bias, to citations.

Credo modules use the following to interactively deliver instruction to students:

  • multimedia and video
  • self-guided tutorials 
  • quizzes
  • text

To review the modules, visit the Information Literacy Tutorial LibGuide.

If you are interested in using the Credo modules our team would be happy to consult with you about ways to integrate these modules into courses or instruction. Please contact us at: ask@gcsu.libanswers.com.

Open Education Resources

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan or resource sharing is the process through which one library requests material from, or supplies material to, another library.

To access your Interlibrary Loan account now, please go here.

Eligible Georgia College library patrons may borrow a variety of materials, such as:

  • books
  • DVDs and/or VHS video cassettes
  • sound recordings (CDs, LP records, audio cassettes)

    PLEASE NOTE: Physical Interlibrary Loan services have returned with some delays, based on availability of items in other libraries. Interlibrary Loan for digital resources remains available, with delivery online for those resources. We thank you for your understanding and patience.

Patrons may also receive via Interlibrary Loan photocopies or electronic PDFs of articles in magazines that are owned by another library.
