Library Orientations

Schedule a time for your class to visit the library and receive a tour and training on how to use the library catalog, databases, and other resources in order to complete a research assignment.

The orientations will be led by a librarian in one of the library classrooms, where each student will be able to follow along on a computer.

Library Classrooms

Request use of one of the library classrooms, 2003 or 2033, when not reserved for librarian-led classes and library orientations.

Room capacity for each room is:


  • Room 2003 (50)
  • Room 2033 (43)

As a courtesy to others, the room must be returned to its original state (see list on the individual room teaching stations for details).

Request for Library Items

In accordance with our collection development policy, although Library faculty are responsible for the overall development of the library collections, faculty in all disciplines of the college are expected to take an active role in selecting library print and media materials. The Library faculty act as contact persons for each of the academic areas and assist faculty with library resource selection and use. For more information, please see the full text of our Collection Development Policy.

To request an item click the below button and include as much information as possible, including author, title, publisher, price, ISBN, other information as appropriate. Include your name and phone number so that we may contact you if necessary. Please also indicate if you are faculty, staff or a student.
