Embedded Library in WebCT: Pushing UCSD Library Resources to Faculty Courses

Abstract

In Library 2.0, librarians are serving two user spaces: the physical space and the web space. New web technologies such as CMS (Content Management System), RSS, and even "old" web 1.0 technologies make it possible for librarians to embed their presence in the mother organization's web space. In 2002, UCSD Libraries collaborated with the university's Academic Computing Services unit to push Course Reserves and top 5 resources from each academic subject into the university's WebCT courses. The presentation will discuss how the collaboration was established, how the resources are managed, our success and lessons learned. The speaker will also discuss new opportunities CMS and RSS offer to the UCSD Libraries to further embed themselves into the university's web community.
