Texas A&M University-Central Texas University Library provides specialized services for faculty, including:
- Class Instruction: Librarians can teach information literacy skills during class sessions. Students will learn to evaluate websites and sources, locate peer-reviewed articles, create accurate citations, and improve research for assignments.
- Class Research Guides: We can create a customized research guide for classes and assignments featuring materials, articles, journals, or media that you’d like to highlight for your students.
- Copyright Review and Assistance: The library has a copyright specialist on staff, who can advise you on copyright matters related to your teaching and research.
- Embedded Librarian: Our librarians love to provide individualized support to enhance your courses throughout the semester. Your librarian liaison can meet with students, co-teach, collaboratively revise assignments, add useful tutorials, and more.
- Faculty Tutorials: Librarians have created tutorials for finding library resources, conducting research, utilizing citation styles, and completing specific assignment types. Faculty can assign any of these tutorials to students.
- Office Delivery: We deliver library items, even to faculty offices. Just ask!
- Proxy Checkout: If you don’t have time to stop by the library for materials, choose someone to be your proxy. Fill out the proxy form.
- Purchase of Requested Library Items: We allocate funding for faculty requests each year. Reach out to your library liaison by email or complete our form to request a purchase.
- Research Assistance: We can help with your research, too. We offer assistance with citations, finding hard-to-get articles, literature reviews, and other research support.
- Reserve Services: We can put physical and electronic items on reserve for students in your courses, making it easier for them to find and use these resources.
- Technology: We have laptops, cameras, digital voice recorders, and other technology for you and your students to checkout.
