For Your Students

Library Use Instruction
Are you tired of reading papers supported only by unreliable websites? A bibliographic or library use instruction session can help your students feel more comfortable, confident, and competent using the Library. Here are some basic topics that can be covered in a session:

• Find a Book
• Find Articles
• Evaluating Websites

Instruction can be customized to include key resources in your discipline or field, finding scholarly journals, or requesting MOBIUS materials. Send us a copy of your assignment and we will tailor the instruction to help students find the required resources.

Contact Lisa Pritchard at ext. 3160 to schedule Hillsboro or Northwest sessions. Call Paula Martin at ext. 3556 to schedule Arnold or Imperial sessions. Or submit your request online.

Course Reserves

The circulation staff can make resources such as supplementary texts or sample tests readily available for your students. Call the Circulation Desk at 3166 or 3167 or submit your request online.

Assignment Alert
Let the Library staff know what your students will be looking for in the Library and we can make sure it is available and that they find it! Call the Circulation Desk at 3166 or 3167 or submit your request online.

Collection Development
Have you seen a book that would be perfect for your students? Is there a video that you would like to show in class? If these materials are not in our collection, you may suggest we add items to our collection. In addition, if you notice materials in our collection that you would like to see reevaluated or replaced, you can make that suggestion as well. All materials considered are subject to the selection criteria in the Library's Collection Development policy. Submit your request online or contact Lisa Pritchard at ext. 3160 or Lisa Wolfe at ext. 3161.
