The Library Can Help You Teach Online!
The library has put together a How-To Guide of Library Resources to help you teach remotely. Should you have any questions, please contact your library liaison or email the reference desk at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Library Can Help Your Students!
During the closure of the physical library, there are still many resources that are available to you and your students. Visit our Faculty How-to Guide for Using Library Resources! If you have any questions, feel free to contact your library liaison for more assistance.
- Do your students need to find and use library resources for class assignments?
- Are you puzzled by your students’ choices of not-so-reliable resources when doing research?
We can help!
During the current closure, the library is offering embedded instructional options. For more information, our library instruction page and our information on Embedded Librarian Instruction Guide.
Library Computer Classroom- D240L (Use Without a Librarian)
During the library closure, D-240L is not available.
Each division has a designated liaison librarian who is available to assist you with identifying resources for your courses or answering questions about how the library can partner with you.

Plagiarism Detection (VeriCite/SimCheck)
eLearning currently provides support for the VeriCite plagiarism detection software, which will soon transition to SimCheck, owned by Turnitin. The eLearning Team can provide tips on using VeriCite, or check out their Vericite page. Librarians can help faculty reduce plagiarism via curriculum development and other instructional tools.
Placing Material on Reserve
Due to budget cuts, the library is currently unable to offer or process reserves.
For the future when reserves hopefully return, please read the Library Media Center’s Reserve Guidelines.
Requesting Materials for Purchase
Faculty and staff may suggest items to be added to the library collection. Use our online form to request materials. Alternatively, you can with a reference librarian, or contact your divisional liaison. Priority will be given to materials in agreement with the Collection Development Guidelines.
All copied material must follow the guidelines of copyright law; start by filling out the Request for Copyright Clearance Form.
Open Educational Resources
Open Education Resources (OER) provide lower cost, adaptable resources for your class. OER are:
- Open – published under an open license to be shared for free or at a low cost
- Educational – provide an alternative to textbooks or other class or curriculum material
- Resources – come in a variety of formats meant to be reused and adapted
Due to budget cuts, we are currently unable to offer Interlibrary Loan. If you have any questions, please contact a reference librarian. We will not be loaning materials to other libraries at this time.
