A few ways that librarians help faculty:


Library Instruction

Professional librarians provide face-to-face information literacy sessions as well as services for distance-learning, online, and dual enrollment students. Librarians work with faculty in developing quality assignments.

Embedded Librarians

A librarian can be embedded in a faculty member's course(s) to support students with their research needs. More information about embedding a librarian in a course can be found in the Embedded Librarian and Tutor Guide.

Study Guides

Librarians can custom design a study guide of resources based on course or assignment needs.


For specific resources for a course, please contact one of the librarians.The library uses criteria when selecting materials to add to the collection. View the library Selection Policy.

Open Educational Resources (OERs)

OERs have benefits for both students and faculty by providing cost savings for students and providing the flexibility of enhancing regular course content.
