Hartness Library ToolboxThe Hartness Library Toolbox is a Moodle module that you can add to your class that links to library tools and resources specific to your course or subject area.
How it WorksWhen added to your course, a Hartness Library Toolbox link will appear at the top of your course page, in Week 0. You can move this to any location you desire by turning editing on in Moodle. Clicking the link will open the Toolbox. The Toolbox uses the “Moodle Tab Display module” to display library information in a tab structure. Each Toolbox has the same tabs, but the specific links vary according to the course or subject. Toolboxes currently available:
|Criminal Justice||Environmental Sciences||Intro to Research Methods||SEI|
|Customized / Special topic||Health Sciences||Mythology||Social Work|
|English Composition||Intro to College Studies||Psychology|
- ScienceDirect – mainly peer-reviewed articles on social science, science, and health topics
- – articles and other sources on social science, and psychology

The first tab lists specific subject-appropriate databases for quick access to article searches and provides a general Hartness search box to search across all library resources.
