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. If the form is not working, please submit information that follows to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide course name, number, number of students and two date/time preferences. Also include any special libguide or assignment needs.
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 KT Lowe at 765-973-8434.
