Library Services and Resources for Summer Online Courses: For Faculty

Library Instruction

Librarians in the Research & Instruction Department are available to provide synchronous or asynchronous classroom instruction for your summer courses. There are several options, including class sessions, videos, or tutorials.

To get started, please go ahead and submit your request through our online scheduling form with possible dates in mind and what will be most helpful for your students. 

As a starting point, an online collection of existing video tutorials and videos is available on our webpage and sorted by course level. These can be used within Moodle on their own or combined with library class sessions. 

Please email with any questions or to receive student responses within individual tutorials.

Special Collections & College Archives Research Support

To schedule a virtual class visit to the Special Collections Reading Room for summer courses or to plan an assignment using primary sources from our physical or GettDigital collections, please contact Carolyn Sautter, or 717-337-7002.

For research assistance, please submit your question through the Ask An Archivist form.

Course Reserves

Reserves requests should be submitted as early as possible using the forms on the library's Course Reserves page. If the requested material is not readily available, library staff can investigate the possibility of an ebook option. Contact Lisa McNamee for scanned readings and Kevin Aughinbaugh for digitized films.

Linking in Moodle

Linking to Content in Moodle

If you are adding your own links in Moodle to readings in our library holdings, you should use a persistent link that will not expire once you close your browser. A persistent link will allow access to off-campus students. Please refer to our guide for creating persistent links.
