Instruction for Classes
A librarian will provide customized information literacy instruction for your classes, highlighting holdings, electronic resources and research techniques related specifically to the course or assignment. For more information and to request a session, click here.
Library materials and the instructor’s personal copies of material needed for classes can be put on reserve at the reference desk. The loan period is determined by the instructor. Typical loan periods are in library use only, overnight circulation, 1 day circulation, 3 days circulation or 7 days circulation. One copy of the desired material should be submitted. The library staff will determine the need for additional copies, including photocopies. Copyright guidelines must be followed.
Materials from the library collection are available for checkout to faculty for a period of three months. Audiovisual materials, including CDs and DVDs, are included. If materials are needed for a longer period, please contact Susan Ryberg (firstname.lastname@example.org). Faculty members at the locations other than Mount Olive may check MOC online catalog for materials and request them to be delivered to their location by the courier. Deliveries are made once a week. Check with the location staff for the courier schedule.
The faculty is encouraged to make recommendations for books and audiovisual material for addition to the library collection in support of their curriculum. Choice book reviews will be circulated to the departments for suggestions for purchase. Order forms are available for submission of individual requests. Publisher catalog, brochures, etc. may be submitted providing choices are clearly marked. E-mail requests are accepted. Requests should be directed to Pamela Wood (email@example.com) or Heather Braswell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
When requested materials are cataloged and ready for circulation, the faculty member requesting the material will receive a notification slip with the call number indicated. A list of all new materials cataloged is published monthly on the "What's New" library web page under “NEW BOOKS.”
The faculty is also encouraged to make recommendations regarding subscriptions to academic journals. Additions are subject to the approval of the department chairperson and the director of library services. Titles for consideration should be submitted in September. Subscriptions are usually on an annual basis, beginning January 1.
