Academic libraries continue to adapt and flourish in response to profound changes in higher education, including student learning behaviors and educational delivery methods. Influencing factors include rapidly changing technology and the proliferation of information and information formats. For students, these factors require librarians to provide greater explanation, context-setting, and interpretation to help them make sense of their research projects within this environment. For faculty, library liaisons engage with assigned academic departments in order to foster collaboration more effectively and to provide a direct channel for partnerships in the educational process.
The following core competencies help to define and identify the variety of collaborations possible between librarians and faculty at UNW. Please, follow the links to learn more.
[We offer credit and thanks to the following university libraries for sharing their frameworks online: University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, the Ohio State University, Duke University, and University of Iowa.]
The Berntsen Library supports e-learning through the library's liaison program which serves both traditional academic departments as well as the adult, online, and graduate programs and maintains partnerships with the Online Learning Office and Academic Technology. Faculty and staff may contact their liaison (see table in the box above) for help with any of the following e-learning services:
Specific examples from UP or Traditional courses include the following:
Interdisciplinary e-resources provide a wealth of quality information that may be used for classroom materials support.
Changing links to library content.
To change the links:
Add the proxy prefix before the url.
proxy prefix: http://ezproxy.unwsp.edu/login?url=
So the re-constructed URL would look like the following:
Please note: If you are getting a new perma-link from a library database, the links should already include the new proxy information.
