Services for Faculty

Research Help: RESEARCH LIBRARIANS can help faculty find resources of any type. Although many resources are at the library or online, faculty can use INTERLIBRARY LOAN to request articles and books that are not otherwise available.

Library Instruction: Faculty can request an INSTRUCTION SESSION with a research librarian. The session is tailored to the needs of the faculty and students but typically includes teaching students how to improve their research skills and allowing them time to practice these skills to help complete a class assignment.

Course Reserves: Faculty can put supplemental materials into COURSE RESERVES for students to access easily. Items can be personal copies or library owned, and they are checked out for either two hours of four days, whichever faculty select.

MyLibrarian Program: This program connects every faculty member to a subject librarian. This librarian can help you request items for the library collection, select journals and databases for purchase, and find innovative ways to help you and your students connect to the library.
