The essentials and history of the Online Course Support Librarian Program

What is the Course Support/Embedded Librarian Program?

Online Course Librarians work collaboratively with faculty to provide research assistance and relevant research information to students within their Canvas classroom. 



Basic Principles

  • We will need to be added as a Teaching Assistant (TA) in Canvas in order to create library discussion boards, post tutorials, research guides, relevant research materials, and send emails to students. 
  • Please work with us to determine how active you would like us to be with regards to your class. 
  • We can create customized tutorials and research guides for your class. 
  • We will provide our individual contact information and availability to the students to create a more personalized research experience.  
  • We can schedule online office hours for research help.   
  • We can help you load your content into your Canvas classroom.
  • We can assist in researching subjects or new topics for your classes, please discuss this with your library liaison. 
  • To have a Course Support/Embedded Librarian added your class, please contact your library liaison or Michelle Strasz, Research & Course Support Librarian, or 989-964-7094
