  • Finding online materials to replace print reserves
  • Locating additional online educational content – readings (articles, ebooks), streaming videos, etc.
  • Providing virtual research/information literacy instruction (live or recorded)
  • Addressing copyright questions – i.e. whether scanned PDF copies of material can be uploaded to Canvas under the change in circumstances
  • Providing online research consultations for you, through your Library Liaisons, and your students, who can book appointments HERE.
  • Adding a librarian to your Canvas courses in a Library Liaison role in order to help you add content, start a discussion board, and to answer student research questions.

Copyright Clearance Center Launches Education Continuity License

Copyright Clearance Center LogoCopyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC) announces its Education Continuity License to enable creative approaches to remote teaching and distance learning made necessary by the pandemic. CCC is coordinating with its community of rightsholders to authorize the use of their materials at no cost by educators as required by the pandemic during this time of emergency.   More on this here.

LINKING TO ONLINE CONTENT IN CANVAS

It’s best to look for a permalink option instead of pulling the URL from the address bar of your browser. This can look different in each database.

  • For general linking guidelines, see our Canvas Help guide.
  • For help using a specific database, click on the more information on a database icon next to the database link on the A-Z Database List for instructions
  • Any other questions can be directed to your Library Liaison (see above) or to research@babson.edu

ADDITIONAL ONLINE RESOURCES

In the current transition to virtual instruction, many vendors are relaxing access restrictions, and some vendors are providing free access to content for non-subscribers.  Contact the library if you have identified a resource which will help you move to online instruction.

Access a list of information vendors providing pro bono access to their content.
