Add a Research 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 Research 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.
