How to Add a Librarian to a D2L Course

  1. Go to Classlist, then Add Participants, then Add Existing Users. 
  2. Set the Role. There are two options depending on the activities you would like to include in your class.
    • Librarian NG does not has access to the grade book, but can edit most content.
    • Librarian G has access to the Quiz and Grades. For the Librarian G role, you will need permission from the D2L Administrator (Jeff Linek), the Library Dean (Julius Fleschner), and your Dean. A simple email should be sufficient.
  3. Search for the librarian by name.  Add them as a Librarian so they are able to add content to the class. Note: Librarians might not be loaded into your system, check with your D2L sysadmin if names do not come up.
