Library Instruction for Online Learning

Just as our on-campus students have access to library instruction, so do our distance learners. Faculty teaching distance learning courses are encouraged to plan an online library instruction session. Please contact Dominic LaFlamme at (203) 254-4000 ext. 2138 or to schedule a class.

Asynchronous Online Instruction:
Your students can connect to a streaming video lesson in library research skills. Streaming lessons may be arranged for EN11 and EN12, or any other course.

Information Literacy Tutorials:
Available without restriction. Students may connect and learn at any time. Quiz feature may be useful for evaluation.

Connecting to Library Resources:
Library databases that index journals and other publications may be searched from home, including full text content, by logging in via my.Fairfield. For books, search the Library Catalog or use netLibrary to read e-books.

Supplemental Course Materials:
Professors can embed links to articles, book chapters, images, and other materials in courseware.

For Distance Learning Students:
