The library is working to support faculty as much as possible in an online teaching environment. Consider the following resources and services and how they might support the move online.
Faculty can request the needed items in Primo (you need to sign into the system to see requesting). Contact a librarian if you need assistance identifying items.
Items will be pulled for you (using gloves and a mask) and placed just inside the front entrance to the Van Wylen Library three days per week. You will receive a notice when they are ready; however, there are a couple of additional steps. You should contact Josh Miller (email@example.com) to arrange an approximate pickup time. We will alert Campus Safety that they should give you card reader access to the front door of Van Wylen on a specific range of days. You will also need to fill out the Campus Health Team’s (COVID-19 Employee Stop-In Request Form) to get permission to visit campus.
Currently, we are only allowing faculty to request and pick up items. If you are working with summer research students you will need to request items for them.
The library will continue to respond to emailed research questions through firstname.lastname@example.org or directly with your disciplinary liaison librarian. Chat reference is available depending on library hours and staff availability.
We offer virtual one-on-one Research Consultations through Google Meet or phone. You may share this link with students through Moodle.
Library instruction sessions can be provided through Google Meet sessions for synchronous class presentations. Contact your liaison librarian to arrange this.
Would you like librarian support embedded in your online course? Consider adding your liaison librarian as a student or teacher to your Moodle course. Please consult with us on the particular areas of the course in which you would like us to be involved synchronously or asynchronously.
The library continues to support research assignments through our online resources. If access to needed physical resources is limited, contact email@example.com for assistance.
