Faculty Handbook


Please visit the library website for specific hours, services, and to search the collection.  

Course Reserves: Faculty can put supplemental materials on course reserves for students to access. Items can be personal copies or library-owned, and they are checked out for either two hours of four days. 

Library Instruction: The library facilitates online instruction in searching for resources, archives, effective presentations, plagiarism, RefWorks, and research poster design. 

Purchase Requests: When it comes to non-subscription items, the library will buy any item you request. 

Research: The library has many materials in print and online to help you and your students do research. Physical materials are typically loaned to faculty until the end of spring semester. When you need something we do not own, you can use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request articles and physical items. ILL typically takes 2-3 days for articles and 7-10 days for physical items to be mailed. 

Testing: Faculty may choose to use the TLC testing for all class tests or only for makeup exams. It is never mandatory for faculty to use the TLC for their class tests. Testing is also used for standardized tests, exit exams, placement tests, and other proctored exams. Students schedule exams online, and all types of exams are administered simultaneously. The testing area facilitates both paper and computer-based exams.

Textbook Affordability: There are options to reduce the cost of textbooks for students in your classes including library materials and OERs.

Tutoring: The library offers free, individual peer tutoring to any student for help with courses, study skills, test prep, writing papers, and resumes.  There are also special group tutoring sessions for select classes to prepare for tests and exams.
