Resources for Faculty

Faculty member doing research

The library has a long tradition of working with faculty to achieve the university's academic mission. If you're a new faculty member be sure to stop by the library and introduce yourself. Resources for faculty include instruction and research services, information about borrowing library materials and faculty reciprocal borrowing privileges, and library workshops. Contact your department's library liaison and learn about how we can help you with subject guides, library instruction, and course materials. We look forward to working with you.
