Adding a librarian to an OAKS course provides an easy way for students to contact a librarian associated with the course and for the librarian to take part in class OAKS discussions and to add news items. 

If a librarian has not been assigned to your class, please use this form to request a librarian to assist in the research aspect(s) of your OAKS course. Once a librarian has been assigned, please follow the steps below to add the librarian to your course.

  1. From your course page in OAKS click on Communication and use the drop down to select Classlist
  2. Select Add Participants.
  3. Select Add Existing Users.
  4. Under the Add Existing Users option, use the Search For box to search for a librarian’s first name, last name or email (e.g. or Elena Rodriguez). Click the magnifying glass or hit return.
  5. Check the box next to the librarian’s account.
  6. To the right of the librarian’s name, set the role as appropriate to Librarian and choose the appropriate section.
