Services for Faculty

Library Instruction

All campus libraries offer library instruction tailored to specific assignments or projects based on information literacy standards. To schedule a session contact a  librarian. Please schedule sessions when students first begin the research process. For more information see the library instruction section of the faculty handbook.

Please provide feedback on instruction using the Instructor Feedback Form.

Media Services

To make a request for mobile instructional equipment or media production, create a work order through Help Desk (http://helpdesk/) on campus or email Help Desk ( from off-campus. Allow at least 48 hours lead time for requests. See Media Center Policies for details.

Course Reserves

Instructors may place library material or personal material on reserve. The instructor must submit a reserve request form. Please allow at least 24 hours after submitting a reserve material request before assigning reserve material.

Photocopies of articles or books to be placed on reserve must be approved for copyright clearance. Please call 365-3563 for copyright questions.

Since most of the libraries' magazine and journals are available in online databases, links to specific articles can be placed on the faculty website or in BlackBoard. See Linking to LINCCWeb to build a persistent link to an article. Contact Jeremy Norton at 365-3563 for more detailed instructions.

Collection Development

All faculty members are urged to take an active part in materials selection for their academic disciplines and to make requests throughout the academic year. Requests for books, audio-visual materials, electronic materials, and periodicals can be submitted to a librarian.

Faculty members are also regularly asked to assist with deselection (weeding), an important part of the collection development process. For more information see the libraries' Collection Development Policy.

Loan Periods

Faculty members may borrow print books or government documents until the end of the current term. Faculty members may borrow audiovisual materials for two weeks and print periodicals for one week.  The libraries will recall items held longer than two weeks if another faculty member or student requests such items. 

Many library resources, including books, reference materials, magazines, journals, and newspapers are available online and are accessible from the library catalog or the A-Z Databases list. They may be checked out using your X-ID as the username and your six digit birthdate (MMDDYY) as the PIN. You do not need a library card to access online resources.
