Library Support for Online Courses

As faculty are preparing for the migration to online teaching please know that the DiMenna-Nyselius Library can help with this work in a number of ways. 

  • We have added a number of faculty supports and resources to the Instructional Continuity wiki set up by CAE and Academic Computing. Resources include instruction on incorporating various media into Blackboard/Quip, copyright & fair use, connecting from off-campus, and a few instructional tutorials on the basics of using the library website.

  • Research and course guides: Research guides list library resources relevant to a particular discipline. Course guides are tailored to the needs of a particular course or assignment. We are happy to create a course guide for you, or help you determine whether linking to a research guide would be sufficient.

  • For students in need of research assistance please refer them to our Ask a Librarian page. If there are changes to research support services, they will be reflected on this page.

  •  In the event of a sustained closure, the DiMenna-Nyselius Library has developed a continuity plan that details the services we can provide virtually. I would encourage you to share a link to the plan with your students so they know the ways they can reach us for support.

  •  If you would like to use an eBook for a course please reach out to Curtis Ferree at We can also assist in seeking alternatives to print resources.

For additional updates regarding access to library services and resources view our recent post on the Library blog, The DNL Report. If you have questions or concerns please contact us at so we can best answer or direct your inquiry.
