Many instructors have asked us how they should provide information regarding the library within their Blackboard sites. We recommend you copy one or more of the following into the "course description" area of your course:
"Students are strongly encouraged to use Sojourner Truth Library's physical and virtual collections to do their research. Students who are able to travel to the library are welcome to use its collections and services. All students may use the databases and other resources available through the STL website. Visit the library's website for information about the library's hours, databases, and services [ http://library.newpaltz.edu]."
"As this is considered a Distance Learning course, you are eligible for a number of unique and personalized research services through the library. These include access to the electronic databases available through the STL website [ http://library.newpaltz.edu/], expert research advice via phone, e-mail, FAX, and Instant Messaging, and delivery of some library materials to your home, office or PC desktop. Visit the Distance Learning website or contact Distance Learning Librarian Stephan J. Macaluso (845-257-2699, email@example.com) for information about access to the library from your home or office."
