Digital textbooks, social media, video content. It seems as if instructors are moving everything into online and hybrid classrooms except for the resources of the library! How can librarians bring the world of quality databases, eBooks, and other digital resources from the library’s discovery system easily and directly into the online learning environment? Why is it imperative that libraries play an increasing role in these learning management systems, and how can we meet the expectations instructors and students have of learning technologies?

This presentation will showcase how a discovery plug-in for learning management systems (e.g., Moodle, Blackboard, Desire2Learn, Sakai, Canvas) adds unprecedented functionality for online course instructors: the ability to create reading lists of library materials without ever having to leave the course site. The plug-in allows instructors to create library reading lists without grappling with permalinks, proxy prefixes, or PDFs, leveraging the value of the library discovery system in a frictionless environment.
