Support for Teaching

There are a variety of library services and resources available to support your teaching and enhance student learning. These include:

  • Delivering customized library instruction sessions tailored to your course assignments
  • Creating customized online resource guides or video tutorials for your students
  • Visiting your class to introduce students to library resources and services
  • Offering assistance to students via drop-in office hours, participation in discussion boards, or one-on-one research consultations

Please contact Madeline Gerbig, Chemistry Librarian at for more information or to request library support for your courses.

Course Readings and Reserves Support

Let us know what textbooks are required for your course and we will help make them available at no cost to students! We will purchase electronic copies where available and place print items in the Course Reserves collection of the Chemistry Library for the duration of the course. Course Reserves are located behind the library service desk and can be used in the library or borrowed for a period of 24 hours.

Send us your syllabus and library staff will purchase, license, scan, link and/or upload your course materials. The libraries provide access to a reading list application called Library Reading List, which is integrated with Quercus and our library resources to provide easy access to course readings for students.
