Using a Library Learning Object Repository to Empower Teaching Excellence for Distance Students
MetadataShow full item record
In 2015, in response to the findings of an online learning needs assessment, two librarians and a web developer began creating a library learning objects repository. This repository would ensure that distance learners were receiving excellent library services, including library instruction. The team worked with the libraries’ digital media specialist to create an attractive interface and consulted with one of the library’s metadata specialists to create metadata that would help to make the repository easy to search and browse. Further plans include wide-scale sharing with the larger library community and continued growth in the number and types of objects in the repository.
