The Librarian is Online: Providing support as courses move online.

Megan Wilson is an Assistant Professor and Research & Instruction Librarian at Murray State University. She currently serves as the liaison to the College of Science, Engineering and Technology as well as the School of Agriculture. Having taught and worked with courses in person and online using a variety of formats, her research interests include virtual reference, library outreach and online learning.
In this day and age, academic instruction is increasingly moving online. Many college courses have some degree of online engagement through LMS systems and as such students expect learning material to be deliverable through online venues.

As a liaison librarian, it is not uncommon for questions to be fielded about how to access and/or how to provide access to materials such as books, articles, library tutorials, and reference assistance online and through university LMS systems. Issues that often involve collaboration between library departments, technical support and the university community of faculty and students.

This poster aims to look at some of the challenges that are faced in this endeavor, including issues of equity and accessibility as well as some of the methods that can be used to address those challenges.
