Tailored digital library environment for each course.

As from this summer, Wageningen UR Library facilitates the creation and maintenance of so-called Course Libraries. For this purpose, a special web part was added to the Home Page which EDUweb provides for each Wageningen University course.

In the Virtual Learning Environment of Wageningen University,  a Course Library is a digital library environment tailored towards a specific Wageningen University course. A Course Library consists of links to bibliographies, databases, web sites, and electronic and hard copy books, journals and journal articles relevant to the course to which it is linked. Lecturers can compile Course Libraries from all sources available through the Wageningen Desktop Library. They can then provide a link to a read-only version of the Course Library for use by students. The links that are included in a Course library will be constantly maintained and updated by Wageningen UR Library. Sources which are no longer available (e.g. web sites that cease to exist) will automatically be removed from the Course Library.

If you have any further questions or if you need help in compiling a Course Library, please contact one of the information specialists  of  Wageningen UR Library.
