Library Services for Online/Distance Faculty

What do we have?

Advisory Service is a standard Library service. All of the subject librarians can advise faculty on resources already purchased/licensed by the Library that would be appropriate for particular courses or assignments.

  • Print monographs
  • Print encyclopedias, handbooks, and other reference materials
  • Print journals and serials
  • Non-print resources--video, audio, kits
  • Electronic indexes, abstracts and full text article databases & other electronic resources such as
    • ebooks
    • statistics and data files
    • reference materials
    • images, audio, & video
    • (see Full Text Resources)
  • Evaluated and recommended Internet resources (including Open Access Resources)

If the Library does not own appropriate resources, faculty can request the purchase of either particular items or resources on a topic. If materials are not available online, Online Reserves may be an option (subject to standard copyright restrictions).

Training for faculty and students on the use of resources, especially the ever-changing electronic resources, is also available.
