The library staff looks forward to partnering with faculty for student success. Please take advantage of the services and resources we offer:
The library can customize an instruction session to meet the needs of your students, whether they need a general introduction to the library catalog and databases or more in-depth research strategies to help them succeed.
We request that you schedule instruction at least 1 week prior to the class time and confer with a librarian about specific content. Information literacy instruction is most effective when it immediately precedes or coincides with a class assignment. Please note that the instructor must accompany and remain with his or her class.
To schedule instruction, submit a Session Request. If the form is not working, please submit information that follows to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide course name, number, number of students and two date/time preferences. Also include any special libguide or assignment needs.
Library Guides, or "LibGuides," are handy online guides to help our students find reliable, authoritative sources. They provide easy access to topic-specific databases, web links, and book lists, including e-books. In addition, the guides contain links and tutorials for basic library resources like IUCAT, ILLiad (Interlibrary loan), Writing & Citing, and our 24/7 reference service “Ask Us”. Organized access is especially important for distance education students since stopping in to the library for help is often not an option.
To request a libguide, email email@example.com or contact KT Lowe at 765-973-8434.
Faculty are encouraged to place textbooks on reserve, as a service to students who have not or cannot obtain them any other way.
To place textbooks or DVDs on reserve, please complete a Reserve Request Form and submit it at the Library's Circulation Desk with your reserve materials. If you need assistance please contact Jesse Whitton at 765-973-8309 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All items that are physically on Reserve are listed in IUCAT. Choose "Reserves" from the Library's main page menu. You can search by Instructor, Course Number or Course Name. To place articles on Electronic Reserves, please contact the Center for Faculty Development.
Reserve materials typically circulate for 2 hours, and renewals are possible. There is a $1.20 per hour fine for late returns.
Indiana University’s Institutional Repository provides open access to research at IU. The Indiana University East community of IUScholarWorks showcases the scholarly research output of faculty, students and other partners affiliated with the East campus. To contribute your work, please read the university’s policies; then to archive your work contact the IU East coordinator, Sue McFadden email@example.com.
When you need to create a new degree, program or course, our job is to make sure the library has the resources to support your students' research. Please complete a Library Resources Form for New Degree, Program or Course Proposal and submit it to Matthew Dilworth.
