Let us know if you need anything!


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!


Some faculty already use the CLCL to have their students create podcasts for class and it's a fun activity! If you have thought about doing one with your students, you can start by reading Creating a Language Learning Podcast by Ece Ulus and Heather McNaught of the University of Pittsburgh. Their article can serve as a quick how-to that might give you some ideas. If you have any interest, contact anyone in the CLCL (see above) for assistance!
