Librarians partner with classroom faculty to promote student success.
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 Library Instruction 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 instruction session customized to the needs of your class.
If your schedule does not allow for a course-integrated instruction, consider offering 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.
The Library provides a dynamic page in the Canvas learning management system with information customized to a given course.
Check Out Equipment
Faculty may check out certain types of equipment for use on campus. Reservations can be made using our online form.
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.
