Welcome! Services for Graduate Students in Science & Engineering : Supporting Your Teaching

Library resources and services to help graduate students make an impact, academically and professionally.

Library Course Resources

The Libraries have several resources for instructors, including: 

Course reserves: Physical materials, such as books, and online content, such as articles or book chapters, can be placed on reserve for your course. Physical materials can be placed on reserve at the library of your choice.   

Course guides: Will your students be doing projects or papers that require them to use library resources?  We can work with you to craft a course guide to introduce them to resources and information concepts that they can use for their research. 

Course-related instruction: Librarians will provide customized instructional sessions to meet the learning goals of your course's research assignment. This can take place in a library or in your regular classroom. 

Adding a Librarian to Canvas: Are you using the Canvas Learning Management System? If so, consider adding a Librarian to your course site for more efficient collaboration, and participation with your students. 

Assignment Consultation: Well-designed, course-related library assignments are an effective way to introduce students to research. Librarians can consult on the information literacy goals of your assignment and make recommendations for ways to maximize the students' learning experiences.
