Library Instruction

Library faculty can assist you and your students in developing research topics and finding and using information to support student coursework. We will tailor the content and format of instruction to the students' needs. Presently, instruction is available through live Zoom sessions, pre-recorded videos, and other types of research guides.

Course Reserves

The Course Reserve System allows for the borrowing of required course materials.  Instructors may request that their course materials be added to our Reserve Collection using the Course Reserve Request Form.  Many textbooks are extremely expressive, placing materials on reserve can help students more easily afford the cost of attending college.
