Librarians are available to collaborate with distance learning faculty in a variety of ways. 

Options for collaboration include:

  • Designing effective assignments to meet your course learning outcomes. 
  • Adding a librarian into the D2L learning management system to provide research help.
  • Working with a librarian to include learning modules into your curriculum. Examples of possible modules include evaluating web resources, using databases, research topic development and citation tutorials. 

The librarians have created Research Guides to support students doing research in the different subjects offered through LSC-Montgomery. These guides provide students with information on getting started with research in that particular subject and connect the students to the different resources the library has to support research in that field.

Distance Learning Faculty can request a course specific or assignment specific research guide that will provide more tailored resources and information that your students will need in your course, or to complete assignments in your course.

Request a course/assignment specific research guide  by contacting Melissa Heselmeyer, the Distance Learning Librarian, at Melissa.Heselmeyer@lonestar.edu or 936-273-7020.

The library offers information literacy and research instruction that introduces students to the resources available at Lone Star College-Montgomery as well as helping students develop college-level research skills.

Instruction is available for your distance learning courses in several different formats:

  • Synchronous Online Session
  • Asynchronous Online Session
  • Modules that can be embedded into the D2L learning management system

Schedule instruction for your course by contacting Melissa Heselmeyer, the Distance Learning Librarian, at Melissa.Heselmeyer@lonestar.edu or 936-273-7020.
