Library Toolkit

Library Toolkit

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

  • Providing a repository of learning resources in Moodle is one of the Pan-University Standards for Adoption of e-Pedagogies for Effective Teaching and Learning.
  • However, directly uploading PDFs of journal articles or books directly to Moodle will often infringe copyright law.
  • It is preferable to provide direct links to journal articles and e-books. To find out how, refer to this entry of our FAQ database.
  • Feel free to ask a librarian for help!

E-learning objects

E-learning objects

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

Embedding librarians

Embedding librarians

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).
