This panel session will address the challenges that librarians and faculty face when supporting online Science courses or curriculum with relevant resources. The scope of the discussion will include selection, collection, outreach and evaluation processes. A science librarian who works with both on-campus and online programs as well as a member of the teaching faculty will provide their insights. Both will share some concrete results of their activities.

In addition, we will hear the perspective of a librarian with wider collection development responsibilities helping us learning about how this piece fits into the whole.

Interactions with online science courses in Nursing, Biology and Chemistry will serve as examples. Quantitative data will be part of this session. We also plan to ask for questions in advance and at the beginning of the session to add to the conversation which follows each panelist’s short presentation.
