*Acting as library liaison for distance learning students. Many students appreciate having a “point-person” to help them with questions and direct them to assistance.
*Collaborating in course management software (e.g. D2L).
*Providing library/information literacy instruction. These sessions can be conducted online or in person and may be one-on-one or with an entire class.
