About Library Commons

The Library uses Canvas to host Library Commons.  This compilation of selected local video productions and other documents is available to students and faculty.   The videos are especially useful to new faculty who want to see how other instructors teach their material.  

  • Please inform the library if you have completed a new review video that should be made available to all students and faculty.  

  • For full descriptions of existing videos, search Library's Online Catalog.  
    Enter Library Commons in Keyword Search (Any Word or Words);  Select title of interest;  Click link for On Campus or Off Campus viewing.
