Are you looking for teaching materials the library doesn't already own? (Video, books, other?)
If you're looking for teaching materials the library already owns, email your subject librarian-- they can help you search for them!
USE THE TABS TO FIND OUT WHAT A PERMALINK IS AND HOW TO FIND THEM ➡️
The image below is a session link, not a permalink. This means it will expire. If you post this link for your students on Blackboard, it will lead to a 'page not found' screen. (Frustrating! Confusing!)
Permalinks may be in different places depending on what database/product you are using.
We know, this is also confusing and frustrating. Please ask us here if we can help you find a permalink. Here are some examples of where to find permalinks:
Example #1: in MinerQuest or any other EBSCO database
Librarians provide library instruction/workshops:
Add a Librarian to your Blackboard course to help provide content, host a Q+A forum, or to co-lead a discussion board or module on research or finding evidence and supporting sources.
The UTEP Library has video tutorials on basic research skills, information literacy concepts, and how-to's for certain library resources. Share them with your students or embed them directly into Blackboard from our YouTube channel.

This may be a surprise if you have heard that there is a big difference between class lecture slides and online conference slides - but the issue is usually less offline versus online, than a restricted versus an unrestricted audience:
If you can limit audio and video use for your course to relatively brief clips, you may be able to include those in lecture recordings or live-casts under the copyright provision called fair use. For media use longer than brief clips, you may need to have students independently access the content outside of your lecture videos. Some further options are outlined below.
There may be some practical differences in outcomes in compliance to the law depending on where you post new course videos - for example, on Blackboard vs. on YouTube.
Linking to publicly available online content like news websites, existing online videos, etc. is rarely a copyright issue. (Better not to link to existing content that looks obviously infringing itself - Joe Schmoe's YouTube video of the entire "Black Panther" movie is probably not a good thing to link to. But Sara Someone's 2-minute video of herself and her best friend talking over a few of the pivotal scenes may be fair use, and is not something you should worry about linking to.)
Making copies of new materials for students (by downloading and uploading files, or by scanning from physical documents) can present some copyright issues, but they're not different from those involved in deciding whether to share something online with your students when you are meeting in-person.
Where an instructor doesn't feel comfortable relying on fair use, a subject specialist librarian may be able to suggest alternative content that is already online through library subscriptions, or publicly online content.
