The library offers resources and services for faculty. We look forward to partnering with you to help our students succeed in their research assignments. Please use the links below or contact the library with any questions.
Customized Library Instruction
Library instruction gives students the tools they need to get started on an assignment, develop their research skills, and feel more comfortable with the research process. If you are assigning your students a project involving research, librarians are available to visit your class and provide customized instruction on a variety of topics including:
- Getting started, where to look for information
- Recommended sources by subject
- Finding articles and navigating library databases
- Finding materials in the physical library, using the library catalog
- Evaluating sources
- Bibliographies and citations
If you would like to schedule a session, please fill out the instruction request form at least one week prior to your preferred session date. Note: THIS FORM ONLY WORKS WHEN USING AN ON-CAMPUS COMPUTER. Have questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Customized Research Guides
Pleasee see our LibGuides website for customized research guides. Library staff can create a customized webpage to point your students toward course and/or assignment specific resources. Please email email@example.com to request a research guide.
While the Colleges’ library collection supports freshman/sophomore level research, we provide support for faculty research through the UW System collections and interlibrary loan. As part of the UW Colleges and UW System, you have access to a wide range of comprehensive databases (Lexis-Nexis, MLA, Web of Science, etc). Many of these databases offer full-text articles and can support advanced research. You can find a database in our A-Z list or by subject. Feel free to contact a librarian if you cannot find the resource you need.
Request for Purchase
Please use the purchase request form. If you have a suggestion for an addition to our library collection, please let us know.
You may put items on reserve in the library for your students to use. This can include copies of old exams, articles, books, videos or anything else. Typically, items on reserve are used in the library or checked out for a short period of time. Articles and book chapters will be placed online in e-reserves. Contact Ruth Maschmeier to place an item on reserve.
