Services for your Students

What Faculty Need to Know

Students often don't know about the resources and services of the Libraries and Learning Commons.  Tell your students about the academic support services available to them, add links to your Canvas site and encourage them to seek assistance.

Research Help

  • Ask a Librarian:  Students, faculty and staff can email or chat with a librarian for research help.  The chat (IM) service is available until midnight most nights.
  • Request a Research Consultation:  Students, faculty and staff can schedule an in-person consultation with a librarian with expertise in their area of research.
  • Research and Course Guides:  Direct students to explore guides to help with all aspects of research, from finding resources, to evaluating them to citing them; or embed guides in your Canvas site.  Guides created for courses at the request of faculty are also available and automatically linked to Canvas courses.  

Spaces and Technology

Study Spaces: The Libraries offers silent, quiet and collaborative study spaces throughout campus.  Students may book group study and presentation practice rooms, or collaborate using technology in the Learning Labs and on the 5th floor of the PCL with no reservation.  Graduate students may use their ID cards to access the Graduate Landing Spot in the PCL Scholars Commons.

Technology:  The Libraries offers computers, scanning and printing throughout campus.  Students may access specialized equipment and software in the Media Lab and Data Lab in PCL, and The Foundry in the Fine Arts Library.  Many campus libraries also check out equipment including chargers, headphones, scientific calculators, digital cameras, and video cameras.
