The library staff looks forward to partnering with faculty for student success. Please take advantage of the services and resources we offer:
The library can customize an instruction session to meet the needs of your students, whether they need a general introduction to the library catalog and databases or more in-depth research strategies to help them succeed.
We request that you schedule instruction at least 1 week prior to the class time and confer with a librarian about specific content. Information literacy instruction is most effective when it immediately precedes or coincides with a class assignment. Please note that the instructor must accompany and remain with his or her class.
To schedule instruction, submit a session request.
Library Resource Guides
Library Guides, or "LibGuides," are handy online guides to help our students find reliable, authoritative sources. They provide easy access to topic-specific databases, web links, and book lists, including e-books. In addition, the guides contain links and tutorials for basic library resources like IUCAT, ILLiad (Interlibrary loan), Writing & Citing, and our 24/7 reference services “Ask Us” and LibAnswers. Organized access is especially important for distance education students since stopping in to the library for help is often not an option.
To request a libguide, email email@example.com or contact Lajmar Anderson at 765-973-8434.
