Services for Faculty

Information Literacy

Information literacy forms the basis of lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become self-directed, and to assume greater control over their own learning.
Association of College and Research Libraries, 2000.
 
Information technologies are transforming the traditional tools for research, resulting in an increasingly complex information landscape. Information literacy is the ability to access, evaluate and apply information from a variety of sources and in a variety of contexts. The library faculty is committed to working with departmental faculty to develop the skills inherent in information literacy and a librarian would be happy to schedule an instruction session either in your classroom or in the library. With sufficient lead time, library faculty can work with you on instruction, presentations and written materials geared specifically to your course and assignment, as well as general orientations for more inexperienced students.

Collection Development

With a focus on student success through program support, the LCCC Ludden Library offers access to books, periodicals, multi-media, anatomy models, computers, as well as online resources such as article databases, newspapers of record, eBooks, streaming media, interactive software and much, much more. 

The library welcomes recommendations for purchase of both print and electronic resources that support students' research needs. If you're teaching a new course and your students will need library materials on course topics, the library staff will assist you in identifying and ordering relevant titles. To request an item for purchase, please contact the library liaison who specializes in your subject area.

Support for Online Courses

The library has more books, videos and articles available electronically than in the physical collection. Connect your students to these resources by directing them to our website or, better yet, meet with a librarian to explore embedding library search boxes, research tutorials, assignment LibGuides, and other library resources directly into your online course. The librarians are also happy to join your class and offer research assistance to students from within your Canvas course shell.

Reserves

Faculty members may place library or personal materials on reserve by completing the online reserve request form. Since it takes time to process materials placed on reserve, a minimum of 24 hours is required. Short articles may be photocopied and placed on reserve in the library. Alternately, items available in one of the library's article databases may be linked to. Whether in paper or electronic format, reserves must comply with copyright law.

Copyright Guidance

Have questions about copyright? You are not alone. Some of the basics are given in our Copyright LibGuide. Your librarian can help you navigate through copyright compliance and provide your students with the materials they need.
