Library Services Make Semester Planning Easier

Now that Summer Semester is over and you are preparing for the Fall, here are some services we offer to consider in your plans:

Course Reserve. If you assign required or supplemental reading in your courses, we can manage your materials.  Our Circulation staff can set up and manage your course reserve material, whether its books, photocopies or provide persistent links to articles found in our databases.  In addition to library items, we can also handle your personal material, so you don’t have to track them down. For more information check our Reservation page.

Library Instruction. Anytime your students need to learn more about searching online resources and evaluating information, we can help. Our STEM librarians are all experienced instructors at teaching skills that promote lifelong learning.  We can either come to your class, or schedule a session in our computer labs.  For best results, schedule any instruction session close to the time students start on an assignment.  Visit our Library Liaison page for contact information.

Purchasing Resources. As much as we try, we don’t own everything at Fondren.  Please let us know if you need a book or journal to support your classes.  Many times we can order a books in print or e-version. If you don’t find the item in our catalog, send your suggestion through our Purchase Request page.

Research Guides.  If you use Blackboard with your students, consider linking to one of our Research Guides.  Our guides bring together the best academic and  professional databases, journals, books and websites in your discipline.  You can also suggest new resources to add to the guides.
