Integrate the Library into D2L: Learning Object Repository

Learn how to add library resources to your D2L course.

What is a Learning Object Repository?

LCC Library has a Learning Object Repository (LOR) set up in D2L which allows you to easily add links to resources such as:

  • research guides
  • Library tutorials
  • citation guides for MLA or APA

If you link to items from the LOR, you will always be sending your students to the most recent version of Library handouts. Also, if a URL for a Library webpage or video changes, your link will automatically be updated.
