Library Resources & Services for Faculty

Jessica Bell, Director of the Library and Instructional Design, Dominique Couturier, Assistant Director of Library Services, and Lindsey Nichols, Reference Librarian, are here to help you navigate the library services and resources.

The Library Resources and Services website is the main source of information about the collections and services available to the Institute. The library also maintains a more detailed guide to Faculty Services for more information.

Below are some additional resources and services available to you as Institute faculty and to help you start making the most of our library.

Course Materials and Readings

Visit the Course Materials and Readings page in Faculty Compass to find out how to link to articles and eBooks in the library's databases, put readings on reserve, places to find multimedia materials, and the rules you need to follow to do it legally.

Workshops, Tutorials, and Class Sessions

If you have an assignment that requires your students to use library collections, you will want to consider offering your students help from a librarian. The help can come in several forms:

  • In-class sessions
  • Workshops outside of class time
  • Online tutorials embedded in your D2L course
  • Customized online guides for your course (View sample.)
  • One-on-one consultations

Contact Ask a Librarian for more information.
