Lee Library introduces Library Services Portal for Independent Study students

Students enrolled in Brigham Young University Independent Study courses can now access a one-stop Web connection to resources at the Harold B. Lee Library.

The “Library Services Portal” has helped English course students during past semesters of testing and is now available in other course subjects, including accounting, communications, civil engineering and exercise science.

This library service provides resources such as research guides, full-text journal articles, research tips and tools, a writer’s toolbox, a link to the library’s online catalog and a delivery service for books and articles, as well as the contact information for a subject librarian.

“Students can access Library Services through the portal at their own convenience, anytime day or night,” said Allyson Washburn, distributed learning services librarian.

The library, the Department of Independent Study and the Center for Instructional Design created the portal with funding from the American Library Association and the SIRSI Corporation.

As new Independent Study courses are written or revised by an instructor, a portal is created, so more Independent Study classes with portals will soon be accessible online.

For more information about how the “Library Services Portal” can help BYU students and faculty, please contact Mike Hooper at (801) 422-2675.

The cloth masks many are sporting these days offer some protection against COVID-19. However, they typically provide much less than the professional N95 masks used by healthcare workers. That may soon change. Recently, students from BYU’s College of Engineering teamed up with Nanos Foundation to develop a nanofiber membrane that can be sandwiched between the cloth pieces in a homemade mask, increasing efficacy up to 99%.
