Do Your Students Use Credible Sources?: Moderately Prescriptive


The moderately prescriptive model would entail directing your students to particular resources. For instance, a chemistry or business course might link directly to SciFinder Scholar (Chemical Abstracts) or ABI/INFORM respectively, while a basic composition course might link directly to EBSCOhost Academic Search Premier. Links to library resources are available to the right for your convenience.

Another option is to give credit or extra-credit for completing our tutorials:

Linking to the Library Via Blackboard

Pfau Library has thousands of high-quality resources online, and most can be linked from your course web pages. The resource must have a durable URL and include the library's proxy information. View the complete linking instructions.

Help from Librarians
