Welcome back, Ship Faculty! We know you're working hard to get ready for the fall semester. Below are several services the library can offer to you and your students.
If you'll be assigning a research project to your students, consider scheduling an instruction session with a librarian. Librarians can meet with your classes to discuss the research process, demonstrate library databases and resources, review how to properly cite sources, or cover any topic you would like that relates to seeking/finding/storing information, and more. Our instruction and assessment librarian, Josefine Smith, will be coordinating the scheduling of library instruction sessions. Use the instruction session request form, contact Josefine (firstname.lastname@example.org), or check the librarian liaisons list to connect with your librarian liaison about instruction opportunities for students in your course(s).
Librarians are available to meet with your students individually for one-on-one research consultation appointments. If students need help broadening or narrowing a topic, finding appropriate sources, or citing sources correctly, you may encourage them to set up an appointment with a librarian. This service has been heavily used by students in upper level courses in previous semesters.
You may want to make reading materials available to your students through our course reserves system. Learn more about Library Reserves via Springshare eReserves. If you have questions about reserves or experience problems/issues with Library Reserves, the Circulation staff (email@example.com / x1461) or Aaron Dobbs (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be glad to assist you.
To request materials for the library collection, please use our materials request form. If you have a question regarding orders, contact Nicole Kunkle (email@example.com) in Collection Management.
We hope you have a great semester, and we look forward to working with you!
