The library can supplement your instruction and your students' research endeavors with a variety of instruction sessions. Instruction sessions can be a one time meeting or multiple meetings. Please see the information below for the types of instruction sessions we offer and the methods we can deliver those sessions. To schedule an instruction session, please contact Amber Owrey (firstname.lastname@example.org or 731-661-5058) or Savannah Patterson (email@example.com or 731-661-6544).
Librarians can develop a research guide highlighting the best databases, reference sources, journals, and websites for your class. These guides can also include special tutorials specific to your discipline. To request a research guide for your course, contact Savannah Patterson (firstname.lastname@example.org or 731-661-6544) or Amber Owrey (email@example.com or 731-661-5058). Please allow at least two weeks for research guide development.
Reserves are intended to be supplemental material that supports a particular course. Reserve items are placed at the circulation desk by a professor for use by his/ her students. They are filed alphabetically by the professor's last name. Professors may check out a reserve item overnight as needed. Reserve items may be placed on either "Restricted Reserve" (in-library use only) or "One Day Reserve." An online Reserve Request form for library owned items is available. For other items, please use the printable Reserve Request form. Forms are also available at the library's information desk.
If you decide to send a student worker to register reserve items for you, make sure to fill out a reserve form and send the form with the student.
Librarians can be "embedded" into your online canvas course as an Embedded Librarian. Through this program, the librarian and professor work together to provide library related content relevant to the course objectives. The librarian can make announcements with helpful research tips, answer questions about research, provide research coaching appointments, etc. The librarian will serve as the students' research support. Please contact Amber Owrey (firstname.lastname@example.org or 731-661-5058) or Savannah Patterson (email@example.com or 731-661-6544), if you are interested in embedded librarians or have additional questions.
