Private Faculty Library Orientation
If this is your first semester or you just want to find out if you are missing out on anything, stop by the library for a quick run-through of how to find a book, request materials, set up a reserve list or even check out a laptop.
Need to know if your course readings are abiding by copyright regulations? Let us help you get everything squared away.
At any point during the year you can submit a request for materials not found in our library. We’ll get them through GIL Express (our borrowing agreement within the University System of Georgia) or Interlibrary Loans (our agreement with other libraries across the nation) usually within a few days.
Schedule a date to bring your class to the library computer lab for a quick overview of our services. We can walk the students through the process of finding a book or journal article, give a brief introduction to citing materials or we can zero in on an assignment to help your students know what resources are available. Our staff is also on hand to do a tailor-made orientation in your classroom or to teach a session for your Foundations for Success class.
Materials for Purchase
If you want to see a particular book or subject area added to our collection, let us know. Do you need some materials for your own research? Talk to us. We may consider adding it to our collection. And remember, as an instructor you are allowed to check out materials for the full semester.
Our staff is available to help you track down resources for your classes or other projects. Let us know what you are looking for and we’ll help you find it.
In addition to our book collection, the library holds an extensive online collection of e-books and journal subscriptions through GALILEO (a virtual library initiative of the USG Board of Regents). We also have DVDs for use in the classroom or for viewing in one of our library study rooms. You can check out slide projectors, laptops, or video cameras (along with editing software). We also have a digital archive of The Post-Searchlight and physical copies of many other local and national newspapers. Come by and get an overview of our GALILEO databases or to browse our DVD collection!
