We have created a number of YouTube videos, handouts, and other resources that can be uploaded to Canvas classrooms or integrated into instruction. All of them can be found and accessed on our Information Literacy Instruction Resources page. The Reference & Instructional Librarian team can work with faculty in a number of ways to incorporate Information Literacy into their course. When considering working with a Librarian here are a few things to keep in mind:
These are just a few things to consider when deciding to work with a Librarian. Overall, we want to emphasize the flexibility in what we can provide, and how we can provide it. If you would like to set up an information literacy session, please call 203-576-4747 or e-mail email@example.com.
It's entirely possible that a required or suggested reading that you have in mind for your class may already be in our collection, especially our extensive electronic resources. If so, it would be easy to embed a link to it into your class's Canvas page.
Please note that, should you desire to have your class read a resource that turns out to be available from the Wahlstrom library via one of our 'pay per view' services, it can be arranged that the entire class have access to it without each individual needing to download it separately. Please contact Deborah Dulepski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203 - 576 - 2388 for more information on how this can be set up.
If you would like some assistance in double-checking Wahlstrom Library resources as you assemble your syllabus, and/or would like some additional suggestions for possible readings in a specific topic area from our librarians, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
The Academic Technology Services (A.T.S.)/I.T. departments currently make available loaner laptops for faculty & staff. The Library, having more hours and a checkout system, checks these out to university employees with University of Bridgeport I.D. cards at the first floor Information Desk. Laptops are due back within 24 hours. We cannot hand faculty laptops to your graduate assistants. Please note that loaner laptops are wiped clean at logoff, so do not save work on these computers. If you have any questions about the laptops, or need a laptop for a longer term, please contact the I.T. Dept. at ext. 4538.
It is possible to embed links to articles and ebooks accessible through OneSearch and the Library databases in Canvas course shells. For assistance, contact a Librarian at 203-576-4747 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To digitize and upload an item not available in the University of Bridgeport Digital Library to a Canvas course shell, please contact Deborah Dulepski at 203-576-2388 or email@example.com.
One way to reduce the high cost of college textbooks, encouraging class enrollment and program success is to explore Open Access Textbooks.
Don't want to use Open Access textbooks, but you'd like some suggestions on suitable texts/articles for your class's syllabus from the library collection? Or, might we already have access to the full-text of an article or a book/book chapter that you'd like to assign as a required or suggested reading? Reach out to your school's subject librarian for more information.
The Wahlstrom Library welcomes collection development requests.
UB ScholarWorks is the University of Bridgeport's institutional repository, a service provided to you for the preservation and dissemination of your and your students' publications and scholarly works.

UB ScholarWorks provides a place to store and share copies of your scholarly works as allowed by copyright restrictions with your students, other scholars on campus, and scholars outside of UB open access via an internet search. Login to access works limited to UB access or to archive your own work.
The Wahlstrom Library welcomes donations of books and other physical items. The addition of specific items to the collection is contingent upon approval by subject liaison librarians.
