Library Collections

Collection Overview

ncLibraries has a robust online collection that consists of eBooks, journal databases, and streaming videos, all of which are available for students to use on or off campus, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (most titles can be viewed by simultaneous users).  Titles can easily be linked to in Blackboard for use in the classroom. 

Library subject specialists are available to help you find these resources and answer any questions that you might have about them. Look for your liaison's contact information in your program's customizable Subject Guide.

Add a Subject Guide to Blackboard

Do you want to add curated library resources to Blackboard for your students? Use the new LibApps LTI Tool to add a Subject Guide to your course. Follow the directions below or watch the video for more details:

In your Blackboard course go to:

  • Add a new "content area"
  • Give it a name that describes that content; e.g., Library Resources
  • In your newly created content area, select "Build Content", and then "LibApps"
  • Give the tool a name; e.g., "Resources for Nursing"

The tool will now appear in the menu of your course! Please note that each library resource page is customized to the program associated with the course.
