Moodle & Library Resources

Welcome

Why do students benefit from embedded library resources?
  • the variety and breadth of research resources available to students is overwhelming. They need our help to focus their research.
  • you can introduce them to important online resources on plagiarism, citation styles, and the research process, to name a few.
  • your reading lists will be dynamic and you can update them on the fly!
  • you can introduce your students to scholarly literature in your field that is important to their ongoing studies.
  • you can put them in touch with their KPU Librarians - one of the best research resources the Library has.
  • if you are using an open textbook, or any textbook for that matter, you can supplement the areas where you have identified gaps in the book through article, video or other ebook links.

The Library maintains a Moodle site that shows you examples of what links can look like. It is open to guests. To see our Moodle site:

  2. Select  Login as Guest and see how embedded resources can expand your course site!

Linking to Library Web Pages

We have many resources available that you can link directly to. No need to ask us for permission! Feel free to copy the url for any of our 'made in Kwantlen' resource pages such as:

Library Subject Guides - library in a Box!

Select the guides that aligns with your area. Copy the URL and place it in your Moodle site - see examples at https://courses.kpu.ca/course/view.php?id=781&section=2. You do not need to ask us permission to link to a library subject guide!

KPU Librarians have created extensive resources guides for many different subject areas and topics. Some of the resources on the guides are open (available to anyone with a web connection), others are licensed resources that are only available to KPU students through their login credentials. Still other resources are those created by KPU librarians for our students - plagiarism, differentiating scholarly from popular resources, to name a few. By directing your students to the subject guides, you are sending them to one place to expose them to many resources.
