Library Support for Blackboard (Courseware Management System)

General information is available at the Faculty Development Center.  Faculty and instructors  can link to licensed library resources and other library guides that are available to support the campus curriculum.

If you use Blackboard for your courses, log in and check under “Libraries” on the top menu which offers a starting point for students to explore library resources both campus and system wide.

We encourage you to contact Reference at 207.581.1673, or contact your library subject specialist to explore customizing library resources for your specific course offerings.
