Are you a faculty member looking for information literacy services for your class?
Research Assistance and library instruction will take place virtually and in-person this fall, and the team of professional librarians will work with you to make the experience as engaging and successful as possible. If you are a faculty member who wants to enhance your online teaching with library instruction or research consultations, you can contact us using the “Chat with Us” or “Text Us” feature on our homepage. We are able to provide library instruction using Zoom, and a library presence can easily be embedded in your Blackboard course to meet student needs.
What other assistance is available online from the library?
The library provides most of our resources online, and we have many guides to assist you with accessing them:
- Library Basics (logging in from off-campus, accessing ebooks, etc.): When You Can’t Come to the Library Guide (Cuando No Puedes Visitar La Biblioteca Presencialmente)
- Research Process Help: On the right side of our main Research Guide page there are a number of Research Process & Resources guides that go over some of what we might be covered in an in-person class – evaluating sources, citation help, scholarly vs. popular, etc.
- Subject Specific Help: On our main Research Guide page each Subject Area in the curriculum has a specific Research Guide which talks about both library and web resources specific to that subject.
- Citation Help
Many e-books are available through our catalog as well, and reference resources like encyclopedias through the “Facts” tab on our homepage search. If you need help linking any of these sources in your courses, let us know.
If there is something specific that you need that you cannot find using these resources, please reach out to us. Librarians are available during operating hours through email (email@example.com) and on chat via the “Chat with Us” button on the library’s home page.
Please contact Mike Hearn, Assistant Dean of Library Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or more information.Print View
