Summer Support for Faculty

Posted on: May 15, 2024

Congratulations—you’ve made it to the end of the academic year! As you take a breath or turn to what’s next, remember that we’re here to support your research and teaching.

You can connect with us online or in person—just be sure to check our summer hours if you’re planning a visit to one of our 4 locations

Here are 6 things we can help you with this summer: 

  1. Getting the research materials you need. Whether you need a scholarly article or rare book, we’ve got you covered! You can request books and other items for pickup at any library desk or for delivery to your campus mailbox. This includes books in storage during construction and books from Interlibrary Loan!
  2. Fine-tuning your Canvas course: Our instructional designers can help you optimize your courses for Canvas, and our educational technologists can help with technical issues in Canvas. Visit the Learning Innovations & Design Desk online or in Rose Library to get started.
  3. Making your course readings more affordable: You can place materials on course reserve to provide first-day-of-class access to learning materials for your students, free of charge. This is just one of 11 easy ways we can help you make your textbooks more affordable. 
  4. Helping your students develop strong research skills: Contact your department’s liaison librarian to learn how we can help your students develop the skills required for research, including finding, evaluating, and citing sources. 
  5. Advancing your scholarship: We can help advance your research by consulting with you on topics such as avoiding predatory publishers, creating data management plans, posting your research on our open-access institutional repository to increase its visibility, and more. 
  6. Finding the help you need: Request a consultation on educational technology topics, creating videos and other media for your teaching, and much more.
