Forget who we are? Fair enough!

Course Materials+ Reminder

Need videos and movies for your students held on reserve by the Main Library? The process has been streamlined so that links can be shared on your ICON site and students can stream at their convenience! The Main Library can also acquire almost any title that you might need, should digital versions not already be available. The process is somewhat new, but you can contact Andy Lewis in the CLCL to learn more about the process!

As the Semester Wraps Up...

... don't forget the CLCL facilities that can be of use. Instructors often use the CALL Lab (PH 17) to train students on technology that the CLCL has in our One Button Studio and All-In-One Studios in PH 120. With this technology, students can create podcasts and videos showcasing what they have learned over the semester. Students can also take advantage of our Peer Education Center, working with tutors to brush up before final exams.
