Six Steps for New Faculty to Start the Semester


1. Get your FGCU ID card with 14-digit #
Your department must complete payroll and sign-on details.  After H.R. has this, your information will be entered into the Banner System. Then the ID office on the second floor of the Student Services building can make your ID. The FGCU ID is your LIbrary ID to check out library materials and is needed for off-campus access to databases and ejournals, unless you connect via FGCU’s VPN.

2. Prepare Reserve Readings for Online Course Reserves

See Course Reserve Policies and/or create persistent links for articles in FGCU databases. These may be put in your CANVAS courses.

3. Set Up Library Links in CANVAS

You can integrate library resources (course reserves, articles, librarians, library videos) into your CANVAS courses. Instructions are here. Or contact Anna Carlin, Instructional Technology Librarian for assistance:, or 239-590-7663.
