Librarians from Main Campus and Health Science Campus recently met with experts from eLearning to create a student-centered, virtual library for UT students enrolled in online-learning classes.

Currently available through the Blackboard platform, the eLibrary Services Center will make it more convenient to find digital resources such as electronic books, streaming videos and electronic journals.

Over the next year, the eLibrary task force will continue to work with students and faculty to improve and refine the site.

“To ensure that the program meets students’ needs, the eLibrary task force will look at usage data, surveys and usability,” said Bridget Faricy, information literacy lecturer and task force member.

Students and faculty can log in to the Blackboard site here.

In addition to actively pursuing digital formats for the Web-based community, University Libraries will continue to provide access to print and digital sources for the UT community.
