Faculty Services

Librarians partner with classroom faculty to promote student success.

Put Materials on Reserve

The library puts a large amount of course material on reserve. Please help us acquire these materials and link them to your current courses.

Request an Orientation for your Class

Many of your students have no experience at all using college-level information resources and will place inordinate trust in the first results of a Google search. If you are requiring your students to do research, please consider scheduling a library orientation customized to the needs of your class.

If your syllabus does not allow for a customized orientation, you can offer extra credit for attending one or more Face-to-Face Library Workshops.

Assign PILOT, the Online Tutorial

The Path to Information Literacy Online Tutorial (PILOT) is a self-paced, six-module resource available at all times. You can assign the modules separately or as a whole. You receive quiz results via email; it is also available as a self-registration course in D2L. More information is available at PILOT.

Check Out Equipment for Classroom Use

Faculty may check out equipment from Instructional Media (LR144) for classroom use. Reservations are recommended.

Use the Collection

The library’s collection of books and electronic resources are fully available to faculty. Please use it to develop your curriculum and do your own research (pleasure reading, too!). Please have a look at our guidelines that lay out the special circumstances surrounding borrowing by faculty & staff.

Build the Collection

Your help is needed to make our collection relevant to our students’ needs. We want to hear what materials would best serve your courses. You can also find out who at the library is responsible for selecting materials for your department.
