Library Instruction

Tara is available to provide library instruction to your classes. You can request the basic research class or a customized session for a particular assignment. Email Tara to schedule a session. 

The Library Research Class is also available as a Canvas module that you can download into your Canvas shell. Learn how to download the module with these guides:

Online Resources

We have a variety of online research databases available for you and your students. All databases require either a TVCC Library card number or a password to be accessed off-campus. Email us to request a password sheet.

Learn how to request a TVCC Library Card and login into the library databases with these guides:

Film Databases

We have two excellent video databases. Films on Demand has a large collection of educational programs, news reports, interviews, stage performances, and documentaries. Kanopy is like Library Netflix; it has a huge library of classic and contemporary film and documentaries. Films from both databases can be embedded into your Canvas course shell.

Research Tutorials

We are creating video tutorials for students about basic research skills. These videos can be added to your Canvas shells.

Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OERs) are openly licensed, web-based educational texts. This means that instructors are allowed to freely save, alter, and share the resources with their students. OER Commons is the best place to start your search for OER. 

Equity Resources

As we progress through the term, keep in mind these recommendations from the TVCC Diversity Committee.

  • Remember that our students are more than just students. They, like us, are coping with additional responsibilities and stresses, like homeschooling or caring for children, working from home, or working in essential positions. Treat every student with compassion. 

  • Students may have unequal access to technology. Be willing to adjust expectations or seek solutions accordingly. 

  • Asian Americans are experiencing increased racism at this time. Be prepared to stand up for our Asian American students and community members by rejecting the use of the term “Chinese Virus” or other racist remarks that may be used to discuss COVID-19. 

  • Taking care of ourselves helps us to take care of others. Try to set healthy work expectations and boundaries for yourself.
