Library instruction, tools and resources for RCC faculty.

Information Literacy Instruction: Services & Tools

Instruction session or custom resource for your course

At this time, library instruction sessions can be conducted in the classroom or computer lab, through Zoom, pre-recorded, or via Blackboard tools. We can also assist with custom videos, handouts, and course-specific research guides. A direct connection between library instruction and coursework provides the best learning outcomes. 

To schedule library instruction or request a custom resource for your class, please email and include the following information:

  • copy of the assignment 
  • proposed time for library instruction, if applicable
  • technology requests, such as Zoom meeting set-up
Librarians in Blackboard

RCC Librarians can also be embedded in a Blackboard course. RCC instructors can email and request that a specific librarian be added as a "course builder" to a course shell. Embedded librarians can:

  • add links to academic resources including articles, ebooks, videos, databases, and websites. 
  • create course-specific guides to reinforce important concepts and demonstrate use of the library's resources.
  • offer one-on-one research appointments and timely outreach targeted to assignment deadlines.
  • host discussion forums on research topics and answer students' questions via email, Course Messages or chat.
Library information to share with your students

Some suggested text to share with your students regarding RCC Library services:

The RCC Library checks out textbooks, laptops, and other materials; visit the Hours & Locations page for regularly updated information. For help with research, such as finding, evaluating, and citing sources, please visit the Reference Desk, email a librarian, chat with a librarian or call 541-956-7150.

Faculty Senate Collection

The library curates a growing Faculty Senate collection of materials purchased to support instructors. The books are shelved at Redwood Library but can be placed on hold to be picked up at any RCC or JCLS branch. We are always open to suggestions for purchase if there are materials you would like us to add.
