Learning Resources for Faculty: Library Services and Academic Support Centers This handbook provides information about and policies regarding the resources and services of the SJR State Library and Academic Support Centers
Each campus has librarians available to:
We will come to your classroom - even if it's off-site - or we can host your class in the Library. Let us know what works for you!
To talk about the possibilities or schedule a class, please contact a librarian at your campus Library.
If you would like library-related course content or exercises developed for your section, course, or discipline, we can do that! Content may be delivered in Canvas or in a LibGuide. Each can be easily incorporated into your online course.
If you are unfamiliar with LibGuides, take a look at these and think about what we can do for your course(s):
For instructional content development, please contact a librarian at your campus Library.
The Academic Support Coordinators coordinate, develop, and provide supplemental instruction for a variety of student populations on specialized subjects as needed. The Academic Support Coordinators also coordinate, develop, and provide group workshops for a variety of student populations on strategies that contribute to overall student success. Workshops can be conducted outside of the Academic Support Center, including off-site locations. To develop supplemental instruction opportunities in your subject area or suggest topics for student success workshops, contact your campus Academic Support Coordinator.
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.
Good opportunities to use this service:
To request this service, please contact the Circulation Manager at the Library where you would like to make the item available and provide her a completed Faculty Reserves Request.
Access to Library resources is granted to all SJR State faculty during their employment and can continue after retirement upon request.

Interlibrary Loans are helpful when:
Please note, for interlibrary loans the 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.
The Librarians will provide faculty and students assistance with basic computer and software functions including Office products, Canvas, MySJRstate, VR experiences in the Library’s collection and its related hardware, Respondus and its related hardware, and Smarthinking.
Additionally, Library faculty and staff will assist students who need to make a video presentation as part of a class requirement. The scope of this assistance is limited to providing the student access to needed equipment, setting up said equipment, providing basic, point-and-shoot assistance if needed, and providing assistance uploading the video to Canvas if needed. A video camera, backdrop, and lighting is available for student’s use in the library.
