  • For faculty, we are willing to come to your class to teach a session if this is more convenient

Subject Guides or Pathfinders:

  • We develop subject guides or pathfinders to assist students in their class assignments
  • Faculty members are able to request subject guides for the classes they teach
  • These guides cover library-owned resources as well as other information sources
