Library instruction and course support

Our Subject Librarians can support your teaching and your students' learning. We can help you to: 

  • find information and resources for your courses 
  • acquire databases, books, videos, journals, etc. for the library collection
  • understand Library resources and services that will best support your students
  • use copyrighted materials within Fair Use 

Your Subject Librarian can work with you to support information literacy for your students. We can:

  • develop instructional tutorials, program and course Research Guides, videos or other learning objects for your classes or programs
  • help develop assignments that can be supported by library resources
  • present library instruction sessions in person or via Zoom to introduce your students to resources that are appropriate for your assignments
    • Please schedule these at least one week in advance to give librarians time to adequately prepare.

Faculty video reservations

Faculty teaching in the U.S.A. may reserve videos from our collection to show in class. See the link below for more information.

Library support for faculty publishing

The library can provide support for your research and publishing throughout the process. Your Subject Librarians can help you with:

  • preliminary literature review support
  • identification of additional sources in your field
  • journal analysis and recommendations for article publication
  • identifying publishers for books 
  • managing your citations and documents using Mendeley or other bibliographic citation software/apps
  • checking references/bibliography citations and formatting before publication

Please note that assistance with final manuscript preparation is outside the scope of our services.
