A Library session can be requested for students before an assignment, in the beginning of the term, or before a major exam. The session can be in person or as a webinar.
Sessions taught in the past include:
Custom tutorials can be created to embed into course material. You may request tutorials to be written or as a video. Tutorials can be on how to find certain types of information, how to get started and use a specific resource, helpful information students will need to complete an assignment and/or exam prep resources.
Assistance is available to embed tutorials into the CANVAS course site.
The library has a large online collection of books, videos, apps, and more. It can be overwhelming if you do not know where to begin. Your Liaison Librarian can save you time by recommending library content. Your request should include the type of information needed, and what format it should be. You will receive a list of resources, with the proper link formatting that you can easily embed into your course.
Library resources need to be formatted a specific way to ensure access. You can not use the URL you see in your browse and copy/paste that into your course material. For assistance properly formatting the links, contact your Liaison Librarian.
The Reserve collection is built with the reading lists in each program. Your Liaison Librarian reviews the new list each year to verify we provide access to all texts, either electronically or in print. You may add print books to the collection for students to use by bringing a copy to the library front desk and asking for it to be put on reserve. You may leave the book for the entire term or for a specific length of time.
While librarians are not copyright experts and cannot offer legal advice, we can provide some guidance on copyright and fair use. Send copyright questions via email your Liaison Librarian with what you wish to use and how you will use it. Library resources are considered Fair Use for course readings and reserves.
Purchase requests can be sent via email to your Liaison Librarian. Library staff will review and make a decision on whether to purchase or not. Decisions are based on availability, cost, and a positive impact on our collection.
Helpful information to include in the request:
LibGuides are internal facing websites you can use for courses, research, or overview information. To request a custom LibGuide, contact your Liaison Librarian.
The LibGuide will be created for you. You will also receive an account if you do not already have one. You will be trained on the basics of LibGuides, such as how to add different types of content and how to set up the layout. You may assign multiple people to be editors of a specific LibGuide.
