Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ: Teaching with Library Materials

Can I reserve physical materials for my course? 

Yes, please fill out the Course Reserves Request Form. We will work with you on providing scans if Ebook editions or other electronic resources cannot be accessed. Reminder: please submit course reserve requests at least 5 working days before students are expected to use the materials. 

Can I request a librarian to teach a library instruction session for my course? 

Yes! We love collaborating with faculty on subject-specific information literacy. Please fill out the Request a Research Instruction Form. We will follow-up with you on your course, assignment, and students’ needs. 

Can I show films to my class? 

Yes. If the films are not available from the streaming film databases we subscribe to (i.e. ProQuest/Alexander Academic Videos Online and Docuseek), please fill out the Film Delivery Request Form.  The library will research and see if the film(s) may be available. We will purchase the streaming right for the individual films if necessary. 

For more information on streaming film in your courses, please refer to our FAQs: Film.
