Request for Library Instruction

Faculty and Instructors: If you would like a librarian to teach a research session for your class please complete this form to request library instruction. After you submit the form, a librarian will contact you to confirm the date and time and discuss details.

Teaching Support

Interlibrary Loan

If the library doesn’t already own an article or book chapter you need, we may be able to obtain it for you through our interlibrary loan services. You can find complete information about how to request articles on the Interlibrary Loan Services guide. Note: the library cannot obtain entire eBooks or print books through interlibrary loan, only pdfs or scans of book chapters.


Special Access Resources

The library provides access to the New York Times and Wall Street Journal--two national newspapers that you can use as part of your teaching toolkit. Review the Special Access Resources guide to learn how you and your students can sign up for the NYT and WSJ. Need ideas for how to incorporate NYT and WSJ into your curriculum? Ask A Librarian!


Library Resources Purchase Request Form

Full-Time Faculty: Please complete this form to suggest new acquisitions for the library to purchase. Requests for items under $100 will be reviewed and acquired as funds allow. Larger requests will be reviewed during the budget enhancement cycle. Decisions about resources that require a subscription and annual fees may require feedback following a trial.
