In this column, I give a brief overview of five ways that libraries can be incorporated into a learning management system (LMS), ordered from easiest to most difficult to scale, or in other words, least to most personal:

  • Offer embeddable LibGuides to faculty
  • Create a collection of graded modules for faculty use
  • Create an online library mini-course
  • Embed a librarian in a course
