Library resources in Brightspace/D2L - Faculty Guide

This guide will explain how different library resources can be embedded, imported, or linked in Brightspace/D2L.

Embedding library resources in your courses

Centennial Libraries has worked with IT to integrate library content inside your Brightspace courses. This allows us to have a presence in your course and offer subject-specific content to your students.

Most of our resources can be added to your course using a permanent link (also called a stable link). This means that students will be prompted to enter their user name/password before going directly to the article, ebook, or video. Other resources may be embedded or added as a Learning Tool.  Use the menu for step by step instructions on how to implement these resources for your class. 

What is currently available?

  • Films on Demand - this is a database of hundreds of videos. The videos can be embedded in your course using the description in the menu. You can also choose to add a permanent link to the video.
  • JOVE Education Videos - this database focuses on laboratory and field methods in science. Several methods exist for adding content to your course, including embedding or adding cartridges.
  • Library Guides - relevant library guides are automatically added to your course code. For example, an BI207 course will be directed to the Biotechnology guide with subject-specific resources for articles, books, journals, and media. No linking or selecting content is required by the instructor. The tool can be found in each course under Library Resources.
  • eReserves. - this is a tool to help instructors manage their, readings, articles, links, and videos and ensure copyright compliance.
