Faculty Guide to Truxal Library

Support for distance learning

The Library seeks to fulfill its mission by supporting students who are taking classes at a distance (online, Arundel Mills, GBTC, HCAT, or any other non-Arnold site). If you are teaching online consider inviting a librarian to be involved in your course so that students can get assistance without "leaving" the course. There are a number of other ways that you can help your students take advantage of the library and its resources.

Make the library part of your online course

  • Link to relevant library's webpages (see suggestions of student resources below)
  • Link to articles in the library's databases for students to read
  • Ask a librarian to help you find electronic resources for your classes
  • Provide the Distance Learning Librarian's e-mail address ( so students can request assistance from a librarian
  • Arrange for a librarian to be enrolled in your online or hybrid course so students can ask for assistance within the course through email and/or discussions
  • Contact Sophie Reverdy, Distance Learning Librarian, for more information: 410-777-2216 or
