We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to make our online collections as dynamic as possible. The vast majority of online library content can be incorporated into your Nuoodle classroom via permalinks.
The use of permalinks allows us to provide links to library resources for students without being in violation of copyright. You cannot save a copy of a document, put it on a server and make it available to your students (this requires obtaining copyright permission), but you can legally provide a link to the article.
Taking advantage of library resources for course content adds tremendous value to this investment in online resources and provides students with high quality content at the click of a mouse. This is an excellent substitute for physical reserve items, as well as supplementary readings.
Just because information is freely available on the web does not mean it is in the public domain or not protected by copyright. However, there is ample opportunity for finding great reusable web content.
Seeking out resources in the public domain or openly licensed content is another great way to enhance your Nuoodle classroom. This includes everything from eBooks and open textbooks to images and videos.
Norwich librarians regularly create and collect multimedia content to help make information literacy instruction more dynamic. Consult our Video Tutorial Repository for a variety of videos on both conceptual topics and tasks that you can embed right into your course.
