Creating a reading list of NYU Libraries sources

Default is the "general" Library Resources tool.


With "Library Resources" tool, your students can use library resources without having to leave the NYU Classes environment.

By default, when students click the "Library Resources" link, they'll view the general library guide.

Adding your subject librarian

Students (and faculty) can contact a subject librarian to set up a one-on-one research consultation.

To add subject librarian contact info to NYU Classes, find your Subject Librarian and add his or her email address to any area of NYU Classes. 

Adding your subject librarian as course administrator

  • Add your Subject Librarian as a course administrator. Contact your Subject Librarian and see how s/he can help add subject specific resources to your NYU Classes course areas, or provide virtual research office hours.
  • Follow the ITS instructions on how to add an additional administrator to your NYU Classes course.

Changing to a "subject-specific" Library Resources tool

Research Guides, created and maintained by subject specialist librarians, contain lists of discipline-specific library resources. These guides point users to relevant databases, reference books, search strategies, and links to external scholarly resources.

    1. Go to Research Guides and choose a broad subject area.
    2. Navigate to your subject within the broad subject area, and locate a Research Guide.
    3. Contact your subject specialist librarian for help embedding the Research Guide URL into your course page.
