OCLC Research Survey About Library Use offers Chance to Win $20 Amazon Card

Have you ever used library systems to search for and access sources? If so, OCLC Research would like to talk to you about this and will pay you for your time, if you are selected to participate in their study.

OCLC Research (http://www.oclc.org/research/) and the University of Illinois (https://www.library.illinois.edu/) are working together on a study investigating how individuals navigate their library searches for sources and how they determine if the experience was successful. They also are interested in how individuals get access to any sources that were identified in the searches and how and why these sources were selected and used. The findings may be published or used in presentations.

If you are interested in participating in this study, you will need to complete a brief online screening survey and provide your email address, which should take about 10 minutes. We will use this to determine if you fit the study profile. If you are chosen to participate in the study, you will need to give your consent by signing a consent form. Please understand that you will not be compensated for completing the screening survey. You only will receive compensation if you are chosen and participate in an interview.

Interviews will be conducted and audio recorded via Skype and will last approximately 45 minutes. Your identity will be kept confidential. Your email address and any other identifying information will not be connected to your interview responses. Furthermore, you may withdraw your consent at any time to terminate your participation. For your participation and completion of the interview, you will receive a $20.00 gift card from Amazon.

If you know anyone who would be interested in participating in this study, we encourage you to pass on this information.

How Do I Participate?

1. The next time you use your library website’s search engine, DO NOT CLOSE THE SEARCH RESULTS BROWSER TAB/WINDOW AFTER SEARCHING. Leave the search results window open, because you will need it in Step 3.

2. Open this link https://oc.lc/discovery-survey in a new browser tab or window and take the survey about your experience.

3. When prompted, copy the “Request ID” from the bottom of the search results page and paste it into the survey. The Request ID (example shown inside the red rectangle below) is a unique identifier that helps us connect your feedback with your search activity. Look for a code that has some small bits of alphanumeric characters separated by four hyphens. For example, “bc981f6f-262e-435c-97cd-668b41af33e0”.

Embed Library Resources in your Blackboard Course

What if you could lead your students to library databases without them even leaving Blackboard? Now you can.

The University Libraries have worked with the Delphi Center to make it possible to embed material from the library website directly into Blackboard. You can embed an entire guide or a single box from the library’s site.

Blackboard instructor’s view of library guide added to course assignments

Our subject librarians often create guides tailored to a particular course, for example, POLS 495: Comparative Foreign Policy. Now you can embed that entire guide into your Blackboard course page. Or, you can embed any box from the University Libraries’ main website (pages beginning with https://library.louisville.edu).

Some of our most used guides include:

We’ve created instructions on how to use this new feature at Embedding LibGuides into Blackboard. If you need assistance, our Online Learning and Digital Media Librarian, Amber Willenborg, is available to help you set it up.
