As we welcome students back to campus, your librarians are gearing up for a semester full of instruction, orientations and other events.
Do your students need a refresher on what Brookens Library offers? If so, send them on a Library Tour! We’ve scheduled both on-campus Tours and online Virtual Tours for Spring semester. The Tour covers where to find books and articles, how to access resources from off-campus, where to get research help, and more! See the Brookens Library calendar for dates and times.
If you would like a tour or other library instruction during class time, contact your library liaison to schedule. (We do online instruction, too.)
Your library liaison can provide library instruction to your classes and one-on-one research consultations to you and your students. The librarians have created online Research Guides for every major which can be accessed through the automatically provided link in your course Black Board. Video and interactive tutorials covering a wide range of skills and concepts are available for your use; embed in Black Board, or assign to students outside of class. Please contact your liaison to discuss ways to incorporate library instruction and resources into your courses.
The library has several resources especially for faculty: a Faculty Resource page which contains policies, procedures and other information, this Faculty Focus blog, and an email newsletter to keep you up-to-date on library resources and events. Librarians are always happy to attend, by invitation, your department’s faculty meetings.
Remember that we can also order materials for the library collection; just send requests to your liaison.
Brookens Library and the Library Instructional Services Program look forward to working with you and your students this semester. See you in the library!
