How to Add a Librarian to your Blackboard Course

On the Northeastern Blackboard instance, it is now possible to add a librarian to your course to assist with review or editing of your course material.

Librarians may add, edit, and delete course material in your course, but may not remove students or other users from your course, and do not have access to view or edit student grades.

Here's how to add a Librarian to your course/organization:

1.  Go into your course/org site in Blackboard and at the lower left click Users and Groups > Users.

2.  Click Enroll User > Find Users to Enroll.

3.  Click the “Browse” button and search for the person by Last Name or Email.  

If you have trouble finding the person, make sure you are not searching by username.  If a person has a drop in the course, you will not be able to enroll them.  In that case, contact

4.  Select "Librarian" from the Role drop-down and click the Submit button.

That's it.  The person you enrolled now has access to your course material.  You may see a list of who is enrolled in the course by clicking Users and Groups > Users > GO
