What New Faculty Need to Know about JMU Libraries (Updated September 2)

Posted on: September 2, 2020

Welcome to James Madison University! We are here to help advance your research and teaching, offering library resources/services and providing support for the effective use of educational technology in your teaching.

On our beautiful campus, you’ll find four library facilities, which you can tour (virtually) in this short video

Here is how you can get the most from JMU Libraries’ services and programs as you make JMU your academic home:

Online/Hybrid Teaching, Instructional Design, and Educational Technologies

Audiovisual Equipment

Library Resources and Services

Carrier Library Exterior and Centennial Fountain

Other Teaching and Technology Resources

Beyond the Libraries, you may want to reach out to the Center for Faculty Innovation (CFI) for resources related to teaching and JMU Information Technology (IT) for resources related to certain technologies. Here is an incomplete list of some of the things these offices can help you with:

  • CFI: Engage in faculty-driven programs and services that provide with you support for your multidimensional role as a teacher, scholar, leader, and adviser.
  • JMU IT: Get help with your eID, Duo, your JMU email, campus wifi, SharePoint, MyMadison, Pulse Secure VPN, and other computing topics. See also JMU IT’s info for new faculty.

We’re Here to Help

Starting something new in a time of great change can be strange and overwhelming, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us! Whether you have a question about a book, your Canvas course, or how to find the best primary source on the history of JMU, we in the Libraries are here for you. Not sure who to ask? Visit our Ask the Library page to use our live chat or send us a message.
