The Regents Academic Committee on Libraries is an academic advisory committee established by the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. It is charged to make reports and recommendations concerning the improvement of instruction, curriculum, research, and service in matters related to libraries in the University System of Georgia and to improve resource sharing and coordination of services between units of the University System. This is a report of the RACL / WebCT Working Group at the RACL fall meeting, November 5, 2004. Initial recommendations were that libraries should be included in the implementation of campus portals and course management solutions ; links to GALILEO, GIL, the library website, Ask a Librarian, the Online Library Learning Center tutorial, and a citation style guide should be placed at the My WebCT level for each student at every campus ; libraries should ensure that designated librarians are trained in use of the WebCT VISTA course designer tools and are familiar with both the student and faculty views and tools ; librarians should ensure that they are available through outreach, advertising, and service offerings to collaborate with faculty in the development of their online courses. WebCT is a commercial virtual learning environment which is sold to colleges and other institutions for e-learning.
