Creating a Webliography in Blackboard

Both the Webliography and Bibliography can be imported into your Blackboard course – each as a single HTML page. It will be located in the imported Class Resources section. It will not be possible to edit these online. There is no similar function in Blackboard at this time.

You can compile a list of web resources in Blackboard by creating a Content Area or Folder and then adding content as a "URL". (URL is the acronym for a web address.)

  • Go to the Content Area or Folder and from the Build Content button at the top choose "URL"
  • Enter a Name, URL (the web address including http://), and description
  • Set other options as desired and click Submit

Build Content > URL


From the Build Content menu choose URL

Add Name, URL, and Description


You can give the web citation a Name, URL and Description

The Description is where you would put the information needed for a web citation

  • Title
  • Author(s)
  • Publishing Organization or Institution
  • Date of electronic publication

and any other annotations.

There is no way for students to add to the list of web citations on their own. Suggestions for student input include:

  • Having them recommend citations in a discussion board forum
  • Using a sociol bookmarking site such as Diigo ( )
