Library Resources for Dual Credit Students and Faculty

This guide will give you information on how to access the resources the Ball State University Libraries offers to dual credit students and faculty.

Connecting Your Class to Library Resources

As high school dual credit faculty, you have many ways to reach out to students with library resources.

See details in the boxes below about the following options:

  • Request Library Instruction using the Online Form.
  • Using videoconferencing software, a librarian can present library resources to your class remotely. Contact us if you are interested.
  • Librarians can create a library guide website similar to this one with resources specifically geared to your class.
  • Students can get in touch with a librarian through our Ask-a-Librarian service and can make Skype/WebEx research appointments with librarians through our Reference by Appointment online form.

Instruction Requests

If you would like to visit Bracken Library with your class, contact us to set up a visit.

Another option would be to set up a videoconference in which a librarian can speak to your class remotely using a tool like WebEx, Skype, or Mediasite to connect with your class at a specific time.

  • To request an instruction session, go to the Online Form or contact Jim or Brenda directly.
  • Let us know as early as possible so that we can request the appropriate technology.

Research Help Appointments for Students

Your students can make individual or small group research consultation appointments to talk with a librarian.

  • Students may go to the Ask-a-Librarian page and fill out an online form to request a research appointment

Library Research Guides

Librarians can create specialized online research guides for your students that can include links to resources helpful to specific assignments.

  • In collaboration with you, librarians can create research guides for your classes.
  • These can include links to resources as well as information about the research process.
  • Librarians would be happy to collaborate with you to develop a video, handout, or other information literacy learning object for your class.

Here are some examples of course-based guides:
