Additional Resources:

John Jay has a rich and impressive array of resources for faculty that we hope you will access. This includes our Teaching and Learning Center (see links below or contact TLC Director Dr. Gina Foster for assistance) and our Department of Online Education and Support (DOES), which includes Blackboard support:

Also, the Lloyd Sealy Library provides online resources at no cost to students and faculty, including scholarly articles, eBooks, and streaming videos. (See library guide to online resources for options: TBD). Although books and videos on reserve or on library shelves are not available while the library remains physically closed, librarians are available for virtual reference assistance via email and chat, and they can help students and faculty find alternative resources.
