Services for Faculty
Roesch Library provides the following services to support faculty teaching, course design, and research.
The Librarians at Roesch Library are committed to helping both faculty and students find and use the proper tools to support research and teaching. We offer individualized instruction sessions by appointment, class demonstrations, and hands-on sessions for your courses.Top
Roesch Library instruction librarians are committed to the University's common purpose of developing graduates who possess the critical communication, reasoning, and information skills they need to function effectively in their academic, community, and professional lives.
Librarians can work with academic departments and individual professors to develop the general education competencies necessary to complete the first and second-year courses required by a student's academic unit. Librarians can also help with the implementation of Graduation Competencies, the extensions of the general competency areas as required for successful research specific to the academic discipline, area of specialization, or external standards established by professional organizations and accrediting bodies.
Departments and individual faculty are encouraged to ask for assistance in incorporating all or specific components of the Information Literacy competency into their programs and syllabi, through class instruction or resource guides tailored specifically to courses or topics.
