Library Support for Moodle
The Library offers a customizable Library Toolkit in Moodle:
Always visible: no special steps are needed to enable it
Allows students to search OneSearch directly from Moodle
Customizable links to more specialized databases and services are also provided
This 90-second video shows how to customize the links in the Library Toolkit:
Linking to e-resources
Linking to e-resources
Under the University's Strategy for Digital Teaching and Learning, the integration of e-resources into platforms like Moodle is encouraged.
However, directly uploading PDF copies of journal articles or books directly to Moodle will often infringe copyright law or our license agreements with vendors.
It is preferable to provide students with the direct permanent link to the OneSearch record for journal articles and e-books.
Feel free to contact the liaison librarian for your Faculty/School if you need help with this!
You may not always be able to allocate teaching time to face-to-face library workshops, so the Library also provides online video tutorials:
All are available via our YouTube channel and can be easily embedded into your Moodle course site
If our existing tutorials do not meet your needs, ask your liaison librarian about creating a customized video for your course
Apart from videos, HKBU librarians are also experienced in creating online assignments and interactive online tutorials

Consider embedding a librarian into your Moodle site by giving us Teaching Assistant access. We can then help you with:
Setting up your Library Toolkit.
Providing stable links to Library-subscribed electronic resources.
Recommending relevant resources from the Library's collections.
Embedding relevant Library E-Learning Objects into your course site.
Directly respond to student enquiries via Moodle (this works especially well if the librarian also leads a face-to-face instruction session during the course).
