Adding the library to your online course

You can add the library home page or a class/subject-specific research guide into the left-side menu of your blackboard course. To do this, go to the Blackboard course you want to add the link in. 

On the top left, above the menu bar, click the + and navigate down to Web Link.


Name your link and add the URL. You could use the library URL, or link to a particular class or subject specific research guide. You could even link to a particular database if the course involves heavy research.


The link will then appear in your course on every page in the left-side navigation menu.
