Our librarians are happy to visit your course to provide library instruction and research assistance. To request a class instruction session, please complete the form below. A librarian will be in contact with you to confirm the date, time, and location of your instruction session and to discuss plans for your class.
Faculty can place materials on reserve in the library for specific courses. Faculty's personal copies as well as library-owned copies may be placed on reserve. Please identify your personal copies when you submit them; a barcode, call number, and Course Reserves sticker will be placed on each book. Standard course reserve items may be checked out to a patron's library account for two hours. A form of collateral (Mount ID) will be kept by the library to ensure the return of library material.
To place items on reserve, please contact Francis Lukban. After the first two weeks of the semester, please allow 48 hours for processing Reserve Lists. Books/audiovisual materials received after 8:00 p.m. on Thursday will not be placed on Reserve until the following Sunday afternoon.
We can create an online research guide that is unique and specific to your course. A research guide will be created by a librarian at the Phillips Library and provide students with scholarly resources and guidance to complete their assignments. All of our research guides not only exist as webpages but can also be directly embedded into your Canvas pages. Please contact a librarian for more information on how to embed research guides into Canvas. Examples of our current online research guides can be found here: Online Research Guides.
We are glad to collaborate to effectively develop students' research and information literacy skills by way of assignment instruction. We can also recommend assignment-resource pairings.
The Phillips Library is also committed to supporting your scholarly research. Please schedule a research appointment so we can explore options together.
