Faculty Services

The CR Library is an instructional resource for programs throughout the college, and we work closely with faculty to provide resources and services that will meet the needs of their students.

Library Instruction Sessions

If your students need to do research, whether for a formal paper, a speech, or a group project, they may benefit from a library instruction session. Sessions are taught by faculty librarians, and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your students and the assignment(s) they are working on.  If you wish your class to have hands-on access to online databases, you will need to schedule time in a computer lab prior to scheduling the library session. Alternatively, we can come to your lecture classroom and do a presentation for students so that they will learn about the many resources available to them.  

Faculty who wish to schedule a library instruction session should fill out the Library Instruction Request Form.

  • Download the Library Instruction Request Form to your computer so that you can fill in the fields.  
  • Fill out one request form for each section you wish to request. For duplicate requests for different sections, you can save a partially completed form with the shared information, and then fill out and submit it separately for each section.
  • The "Submit" button at the bottom of the form should email it to Cathy Cox. If the "submit" button doesn't work, please email the form to
  • You will get a confirmation back from Cathy Cox once your session is finalized.

Assignment Assistance

If you are preparing a research assignment for your class, our faculty librarians can help you identify specific resources that are appropriate for your students and available in the CR Library or electronically.  We're constantly adding new materials both in print and online, and the more closely we work with individual faculty the more we can tailor our collections to the needs of your program.  

Contact Ruth Moon, x4263, for more information.

Reserve Materials

Faculty are encouraged to put materials on Reserve in the library for students to access for two-hour use in the library.  Please review the Library Reserve Materials Policy to see what types of materials we can accept for reserve.  For more assistance, contact the Library Circulation Desk, x4260.
