      About This Tutorial:

      This tutorial Library Research Skills for Biologists was co-written by Sally Taylor and Katherine Kalsbeek assisted by Web Designer, Suzan Zagar in 2000. This tutorial was licensed under Creative Commons License, Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 and donated to ALPS LINK in 2008. The creators, Katherine Kalsbeek, Sally Taylor and Suzan Zagar were recognized by a panel of their peers and awarded the 2008 Laud a Librarian Award. Since 2008, it has been updated and maintained by Katherine Miller and Suzan Zagar.

      In the fall of 2000, Sally Taylor in collaboration with Director of First Year Biology, Carol Pollock designed a marked library assignment that included a research tutorial originally created in WebCT, then migrated to Vista.

      In the 2011-2012 academic year, the Library Research Skills for Biologists tutorial was used by 1377 BIOL 140 students (88% of the students registered in the class) who reviewed 5 or more pages in the tutorial.

      In November 2012, with UBC's change of learning management systems from Vista to Blackboard Learn, the tutorial content was migrated to UBC wiki and published in Connect (Blackboard Learn).

      This tutorial is published in Blackboard Learn (Connect) and available to everyone at http://guides.library.ubc.ca/tutorial-biology. This tutorial was last updated in the Summer 2015 and last populated with students January-April 2015. Due to workload and changes in BIOL 140, this tutorial is currently not being updated.

      The Structure for Storing this Content:

      1. On the library instruction space: http://wiki.ubc.ca/Library:Instructional_Materials, we will post only one page (a home page to this tutorial) under the category Library Tutorials http://wiki.ubc.ca/Library:Instructional_Materials#Library_Tutorials
      2. The tutorial home page is a simple list of the module home pages. This structure will facilitate easily finding all of the pages in each module. (This page is the tutorial home page for the "Library Research Skills for Biologists Tutorial".)
      3. The module home page will include the pages of only the one module. Example, http://wiki.ubc.ca/Library:Library_Research_Skills_For_Biologists/Module_1
      4. All-Pages page in the tutorial. To facilitate maintenance of this tutorial, we will add the category "All-Pages" to each page in the tutorial.

      How to Direct Link to this Tutorial

      If you want to provide a URL to users that will take them directly to a course, or a specific page/tool:

      1. Copy the URL (e.g. for a course, right click on the course link in the Courses module and copy the link)
      2. Encode the URL (e.g. http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/)
      3. Place the encoded URL after returnUrl= in the following URL:
      https://connect.ubc.ca/webapps/ubc-ctc-learn-ui-b2-BBLEARN/execute/shibbolethLogin?authProviderId=_162_1&returnUrl=

      This should generate a functional direct link. If the user is already authenticated, they'll be taken directly to the URL. If they are not authenticated, they'll be redirected to CWL and upon successful authentication, they'll be redirected to the desired URL.


      Problems getting this to work? Note these Details:

      1. Click on the drop down arrow next to the page title. The instruction in step one mentions to copy the URL. The URL you use is found by clicking on the drop down arrow next to the page title. In this example, I want a direct link to module 3 page 5 that I can share.

      click on drop down arrow


      2. Click on Metadata

      Metadata


      3. Select Resource Location URL. For step two in the instructions above, note that you need to encode the Resource Location URL.

      Populating the Tutorial in Courses

      To have students from a course added automatically into one of the UBC Library's tutorials in Connect, after confirming permission from the course instructor, contact Yvonne Chan before the term starts. Note: in courses where there is a T1 section, the library populates the courses into the second term too, by default. In Connect, you may not see a specific course showing as part of either 20XX1-2 or 20XXW2 classes because the course is by default grouped under 20XXW1. This grouping occurs during the course creation process, when it was required that the course be associated with a primary section and Yvonne will pick one section. For some courses, there is no section that spans term 1 and 2, otherwise, she will select that section and make the course shows up under the grouping, 20XXW1-2. With this in mind, you can then assume that all Connect Library tutorials that are labelled "20XXW" are enrolled with users from all sections from both Term 1 and Term 2 by default. (This information is summarized from an email from Yvonne dated Dec 8, 2014.)
