Library Services for Faculty

Services available to faculty include our information literacy program, research consultation, course reserves, interlibrary loan (ILL), and support locating open educational resources (OER) for affordable learning.

Information Literacy Program

Use the Library Workshop Request form to schedule a time for a librarian to meet with your class to discuss research strategies and to demonstrate how to navigate library information resources.

Course Reserves

Course reserve materials are any items that faculty would like set aside to support class instruction. This does not have to be limited to physical books, for example the biology faculty have asked us to circulate anatomy bones for nursing students.  Any item that supports student learning is a candidate for reserves.  If we can put a barcode on it then it can be loaned out. 

Reserve materials are housed in closed stacks behind the service desk. Reserve items are generally listed as 3-hour library use only.  Faculty can request longer borrowing periods if necessary.

Students are able to search Bearcat Search, the discovery platform, for Course Reserves with either the Course # or the Instructor's Name.

If you would like to add materials to our course reserves complete the Course Reserves Request form.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan requests can be made through the Request Books and Request Articles pages on our website.

Affordable Learning

Review our Affordable Learning page for ways to incorporate Open Educational Resources into your courses. If you need further assistance please email to request a consultation session with a librarian.

If you have a suggestion for a book, media or other information resources, please use the Suggest a Resource form to communicate with the librarians. 

If you have general feedback about library services or the navigation of this website please let us know via our Online Suggestion box.
