With fall semester just beginning, Travis Dolence is offering assistance with your distance education classes. As the Distance Learning Librarian, Dolence is dedicated to helping you and your students and can provide assistance in the following ways: 

  • Create online course-specific “pathfinders” or help sheets for Library resources. These online help sheets can be tailored for any class and can include web resources, library databases, books, etc. (see examples at http://libguides.mnstate.edu/).
  • Act as library liaison for distance learning students. Many students appreciate having a “point-person” to help them with questions and to direct them to materials.
  • Collaborate within course management software (e.g., D2L).
  • Provide library/information literacy instruction. These sessions can be conducted online or in person and may be one-on-one or with an entire class.
