Faculty Guide to Library Services: Curriculum Support

Information about library services available to faculty.

Curriculum Support from College Libraries

The College Libraries support course affordability and ease of access by encouraging the use of library books, eBooks, DVDs, streaming video, and articles in your course curriculum. The library encourages such usage by offering physical reserves and OAKS-compatible electronic reading lists. 

Our librarians and archivists can help you identify affordable materials for your curriculum, whether it is a library-licensed resource, an Open Educational Resource (OER), or freely-available resource. If we do not have something you need, you can make a purchase suggestion and the library will investigate purchasing or licensing options. 

Selecting & Requesting Materials

Collection Development

Request books, eBooks, DVDs, journals, databases, and other resources to support your teaching and investigate read & publish agreements to support your research.
