Adding a Library Widget to CommonView

 

Add How do I...? widget

    You can embed a How do I…? widget directly into your course Catalyst CommonView space. This widget will help students get research help when they need it, by viewing short 2-3 minute videos that present concepts such as “What is a Scholarly Journal?” or show them how to use tools such as the citation management software, RefWorks.

      1. In CommonView, on the Add content menu, click Rich Text. If you want to add the widget to existing rich content, hover over the rich content and click Edit.
      2. In the text editor tool bar, click Source.
      3. Select and copy the following code:
        <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://widgets.libguides.com/lgwlr.swf?wid=7383" width="400" height="370" ><param name="movie" value="http://widgets.libguides.com/lgwlr.swf?wid=7383" /><param value="transparent" /></object>
      4. Paste the code into the editor.
