The OTL Podcast: What the Library Can Do for You

The OTL Podcast: What the Library Can Do for You

By Jeff Schwartz, OTL Instructional Designer

It took me years to realize that I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel with every course I taught. I became a better teacher (not to mention a better Instructional Designer) when I leaned on the resources and expertise of others. Here at DU, the library is one of the best partners for faculty to lean on as we navigate through these murky (post?)-pandemic times and begin planning for the 2021-2022 school year.

DU’s library offers a dizzying array of resources and services that support teaching and research. In addition to physical and digital media—including over a million books, nearly 1,000 research and media databases, and 98,000 academic journals—the library supports faculty through grants, panels, workshops, research guides, and more.

In this episode of the OTL Podcast, we talk about it all: the library’s diverse collections, grants, informational literacy, and even video games. Click below to listen to the episode or visit the OTL Mediaspace page.

A special thanks to Jenny Bowers, Bridget Farrell, and Peggy Keeran for their time, generosity, and expertise.
