The Library Eagle Online "Combo" Block

Would you like a quick and easy way to add library tools to your Eagle Online Course?

We've got just the solution! Why not add the sidebar block shown here? That way, your students will never lose sight of the vast resources that their HCC libraries make available. A catalog search box, helpful links, and our AskALibrarian chat window are all included.  

Here are the steps to follow to build the block in your EO course

·        Select the entire code snippet found at this link
·        Choose to copy your selection (Ctrl-C)
·        Back in Eagle Online (make sure you have editing turned on!) - from the Blocks tab, choose to add an HTML block
·        Go to the new HTML block
·        Click on the Configuration option
·        Type in a Block Title- HCC Library Resources or Library Tools are suggested
·        Click on the Toggle HTML Source button on the editor’s toolbar. It looks like this- < >
·        Paste (Ctrl-V) in the code snippet. You can ignore or replace any bits of code already in the content area.
·        Save changes at the bottom
·        View the results! Your HTML block should now look like the image shown here
·        Note- the same code snippet can be used to add the content to any HTML page you wish!

Want to add a block that just has the library links? You can get this code here. The process is the same as above- just name the block HCC Library Links!

If you'd just like to add the AskALibrarian chat window portion, you can do that by adding the code here. Name this block Ask A Librarian!
