Librarians can create subject-specific Research Guides (LibGuides) to help students locate materials in their disciplines, but did you know we can do the same thing at the course and assignment level?
Example Research Guides:
If your class would benefit from a course- or assignment-specific Research Guide, please email Beryl White-Bing
To assist in the distribution of class materials, each SJR State Library has a Reserves Collection consisting of items selected by faculty members for their students' use. Any item owned by a faculty member or an SJR State department may be placed on Reserve in the Library. The Library then checks out the item to the user so the faculty member does not have to manage the item. Faculty may also choose to put an item owned by the campus Library on Reserve for a specific time period for in-library use.

Some thoughts to consider when scheduling an instruction session include:
Looking for electronic resources to supplement your online course? The Library has academic videos through the Films on Demand database that can be embedded into Blackboard.
Need an instructional video made for a service such as Turnitin, Smarthinking, or checking student email? Contact a librarian. We can show you how or create one for you to use.
Need an item that SJR State Libraries do not own?
Contact Beryl White-Bing to request the item through interlibrary loan.
For interlibrary loans, loan periods and renewal policies are set by the lending libraries and will vary by item. A request for renewal must be made four days prior to the due date set by the lending library. The lending library has the right to grant or deny a renewal.
