Faculty Log In for Library Resources:
UNLIMITED Simultaneous Users:
Let your students know eBooks are available 24/7 and can be used on most devices from PC to MAC to Smart Phone. If they have any questions on use or citation, the Library would be glad to assist. We add ebooks and digital sources daily, so we'd be glad to share and demonstrate our resources one on one, for a class or event a Google Hangout.
A Librarian would be glad to look over your syllabus and assignments and prepare a list of library resources to support your course. A Library provided link, widget or search box could be used to direct students from inside ANGEL to the right area.
You could also add the Ask A Librarian widget inside the course in order to provide access to research help to students who may not be aware of the service.
Fully functional example:

Usage is "first come first served", however priority is given to student groups, disabled students and students that need to view DVD & VHS materials.
