1. What do you mean when you say "Library LTI?"

When we say library LTI, we're referring to a standardized way to bring library content (databases, ebooks, articles, videos, and librarian research assistance) into a ulearn course page.

When enabled, students simply click a link and are taken to a page featuring library resources customized for their course.

JWU librarians have created LTI pages that are matched to courses by course code (for example: all courses with ENGN will be matched to the library-created LTI Guide for Engineering). These matches are customized to school, program, or subject and are based on the course code.  

2. How do I get to my LTI page? (Where is library LTI?)

If LTI is already switched on in your course, you just need to find it in your course toolbar and click on it.

Note: the link to the Library's LTI page could be under a different name (it is up to the instructor what it is called but it might be called 'the library' or 'library resources')

If it is not switched on in your course, please see next question.

3. How do I enable Library LTI in my ulearn course?

If you are in the instructor:

1. Add ulearn tool link

2. Select "LibApps"

3. In the "Name" category provide a label that you think would best communicate the content of this area to your students ("Library", "Library Resources",  could work well. Also, you can  change this any time)

LTI GIf (adding to course)

4. I am seeing a generic, non-program-specific guide in my course. Is there any way to get it a guide that is subject, program, or department specific?
Please send the Library's Director of Digital Resources and Services an e-mail and they will work with you match a guide to your course.

5. What I'm seeing is too general for my needs. What if I want content specific to my course section in LTI?

Our traditional model of embedding a librarian directly into your course might be better for you in this circumstance.

Visit this page to learn more and we'll work to get you setup with content customized to just your course section.

7. How does Library LTI differ from other library access points?
