A library course page on the library website is ideal for having links to readings and resources available to students to be accessed at any time, on or off-campus, in an organized fashion and kept up-to-date for your course through faculty and librarian collaboration.
A course page can be a single page listing linked resources or a set of pages providing detailed information, hands-on practice opportunities using library resources, and other library instructional documents.
Library course pages are an excellent option if you have:
- Readings you wish your students to have that are not copyrighted or articles from databases that can be viewed full-text online and linked from a course page
- Organized list of readings and/or resources
- Organized web page of readings, resources, tools, and tutorials linked or developed by a librarian
- Online bibliography of resources for a core seminar section, course, or set of courses
- Online annotated bibliography of resources for a core seminar section, course, or set of courses
- No need for a course-specific login for your students
Library course pages are created by librarians in collaboration with faculty.
Library course pages can provide support for traditional courses designed otherwise to be strictly in the classroom, face-to-face; hybrid courses with an online Angel component; and distance learning courses.
Course page creation and maintenance can involve continual librarian review of potential new library resources for consideration of inclusion in any course page, per faculty request. With the exception of the core seminar, course pages provide light to medium support for courses.
To request a course page, contact Reference & Instruction Services at 251-4585 or .
The Library's CORE Course Pages are a more substantive series of web pages designed for CORE 179, 279, 379, and 479 with readings, interactive media, tutorials, and self-assessment tools. The Library's CORE Course Pages were developed working with the Core Curriculum Committee and are based on the original KSDs for the CORE seminars.
The Library's CORE Course Pages are designed so that students build upon the skills and knowledge gained in each seminar; each seminar's course pages builds upon the previous.

Angel provides comprehensive learning management system features for a full range of online support of a course, from light to heavy support. Angel offers by far the most options available. Angel is used to store any document that could be digitized for a course. If an instructor is unable to digitize it, staff members of the (CITe) are happy to do it for him or her.
For example, faculty can use Angel as an online environment for any of the following:
- Faculty-created items such as syllabi, lessons, and more
- Student assignments
- Uploading PDFs
- Faculty-student communications
- Online interactivity
- User groups
- Video and audio
- Online gradebook
Angel course shells are created by faculty; assistance of an Instructional Designer from CITe is available.
Librarians can be involved in collaboration with faculty to create resource pages within Angel or online tutorials or other learning objects to drop into Angel course shells.
Additionally, if a faculty member chooses Angel as the online foundation for his/her course, the individual can link to a Course Page.
