Faculty Services

Services for Faculty

In addition to the standard library services, we offer several faculty-only services to assist you in your research. Please contact the liaison librarian for your college regarding any of the following services.

Research Services

  • Consultations: The library reference staff offer one-on-one and group faculty consultations to assist you with the use of library resources including our online databases.
  • Book Request: We welcome requests for Books and eBooks that support curriculum, courses, and faculty research. Please contact your liaison with the title, author, year published, edition (if applicable), and the Course name/number that the book is in support of. We will contact you with the availability of the item and order it if possible. Please note that, due to budgetary constraints, we cannot guarantee we will order the requested item.

Instructional Services

  • Classroom Instruction: Collaborate with one of our librarians to teach students information literacy concepts and skills. We’ll design a customized class session for your class and/or assignment(s) and host you in our Library Instruction Labs.

  • Assignment Design: Librarians can consult with you on the design of research assignments as well as recommend resources.  If you would like to add a librarian to your Blackboard course or discuss a possible collaboration with a librarian, contact Carolyn Caffrey Gardner or your liaison librarian.
  • Reserves and eReserves: Place materials on our reserve desk or electronic reserves system to make it easy for students to access required course readings.
  • Archives & Special Collections: Archival and special collections materials can be placed on reserve and the archivists can provide an orientation to using materials for your course.
  • Research Guide: Request your liaison librarian create a Research Guide for a specific course or topic.
