Services for Faculty
Information Literacy Instruction
Librarians routinely present and provide instruction to classes at all levels. Much of our instruction is related to information literacy and the research process. To schedule an instruction session, contact your subject librarian or the library directly.
Upon request, a subject liaison librarian will travel to an off-campus site to provide face-to-face classroom instruction. Contents of presentations (i. e. PPT slideshows and handouts) can be posted online via the online library subject guides or via Blackboard - just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research and Course Guides
Research and course guides are online web pages created by librarians to gather subject or course-specific resources and help patrons perform various tasks, such as using library resources or doing research. We offer a number of guides in subjects like Allied Health, Arts and Humanities, Business, Education, Information Literacy, Math and Sciences, Nursing, and Social Sciences.
