Remote Teaching

Resources to help you navigate teaching online during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We're here to help!

The librarians are here (virtually, of course) to help you and your students! Would you like to have a library guide, a.k.a. libguide, made to help your students with their research project?  Libguides, many database resources, and even librarians can be embedded directly into your Canvas course shell. Email us (refdesk@columbiasc.edu OR kdunn@columbiasc.edu) to discuss the best option for you and your students!

Library Databases

With over 100 online databases, Edens Library has virtual resources for everyone! Check them out: Go to A-Z List . To log in from off-campus, enter your CC email address and password.

OER
