Faculty Resources

Library Orientations:

The LMC Librarians encourage you to schedule a library orientation for your class. Christina Goff will work with you to design library instruction to meet your students' needs and course objectives.

Library Orientations can:

  • be a basic introduction to library services and accessing the collection,
  • be designed to address the research needs of an existing class assignment,
  • include an assignment tailored specifically for your class.

To schedule a Library Orientation for your class, email Christina Goff or stop by the Reference Desk on the main floor of the Library.

If you assign a research project, but do not have time to bring your class to the library, please consider emailing the librarians a copy of the assignment. This will allow us to be better prepared to serve your students.

 

Reference Services:

The Reference Desk is staffed by professional librarians trained to assist students, faculty and staff locate library materials and to access, evaluate and properly cite information resources.

Please encourage your students to stop by the Reference Desk or schedule an in-depth research consultation.


Placing Materials on Reserves:

The Reserve Collection is located behind the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library. It includes high-demand textbooks, articles and books for current LMC Courses. The loan periods range from three hours to one week. The Reserve Collection is extremely popular especially at the beginning of the semester before student loan checks are distributed.

There are two methods to add your textbook to the Reserve Collection.

  1. Donate an extra copy of your textbook: If you have an extra copy of your textbook, please consider donating or lending it to the Reserve Collection. Please include a copy of the Library Reserve Form with your donated books so we know what instructor and course to list them under.
  2. Request that the Library purchase a copy of your textbook: The library has a limited budget provided by the LMC Foundation and LMCAS to purchase reserve textbooks. In order to request the purchase of your textbook for the Library Reserve Collection, please fill out the Library Reserve Form.

Check if anything has been put on Reserve for Courses you Teach:
Please check the items on reserve under your name and course each semester to help us keep our reserve records current.

  1. 1.  Go to the Library Catalog.

  2. Click on Advanced Search button
  3. In the Enter Search Terms box, click on the "any field" tab and choose notes.
  4. Enter your last name, and if you have items on reserve, a list of items on reserve should pop up on the results page.
  5. If there are no results and you know we have items from your class on reserve, we are still adding instructor last names to our reserve list and they should be there soon. You can also search for your books by title or author in the catalog.
  6. Email Christine Park if you find any inaccuracies or have any updates.
