Why the Library?

Students often use Google to complete research assignments unless instructors direct them otherwise. Why should you tell your students to use the Library resources?

  • They can gain quick and easy access to scholarly resources without searching through 1.5 million results
  • They won't need to waste time evaluating whether the information they retrieve is credible or correct
  • They will prepare better papers and assignments and (as a result) get better grades

We are here to help you find ways to use the library to support your teaching. We can:

  • Set up Course Reserves for in-library use
  • Demonstrate how to access library materials on and off campus
  • Provide instruction sessions to provide a general introduction to the library or help students get started with a specific assignment
  • Identify what journals and other digital resources/databases in your subject area are available through the library
  • Locate articles and other materials to support your courses and research projects
  • Provide a digital space to host student papers and projects
  • Brainstorm other ways we can support your academic needs

Library Instruction & Tours

Librarians are available to provide instruction to any class, introducing students to information resources and research techniques. Librarians are willing to lead these sessions or, if the faculty member prefers, provide the information to the faculty member for their syllabus.

Tours and also be arranged and can be combined with instruction sessions if desired. Instructors need to attend with their students.

All sessions can be customized to the needs of the course in both length and focus. Instructors are required to be present with their students. At least one week's notice is requested when scheduling these sessions.

Please contact us to schedule a session: libraryhelp@fontbonne.edu.
