Bridwell Art Library is closed through at least April 28. All outstanding items will be renewed until July 31, or whenever the library reopens. We are not charging fines during this time.

Library instruction can be offered either synchronously or asynchronously to your classes through Blackboard Collaborate (you must add the Art Librarian to your course first) or Zoom.
Consider adding the Art Librarian as an Instructor to each of your Blackboard courses so that we can better assist you with the transition to online instruction and the use of library resources and services in a virtual environment. Blackboard can be used to share research tips and resources and students can use discussion boards to ask research questions.
Step-by-step instructions on adding users to Blackboard.
The Art Librarian can also record short videos upon request for your students using Panopto.
