Library staff are here to help you successfully teach your courses this academic year.

Teaching Assistance

Consult with your subject librarian about joining your class or participating in a course Slack channel. They can work with you to create assignments using library resources. Or ask them about creating a customized research guide to meet the specific needs of your course or research assignments.

Special Collections staff will work with you to design a class session or to provide special collections materials to support your course and its assignments.

Collaborate with the Book Arts Workshop to create class sessions around the subject of books, book history, printing, binding, or the book as art or journal.

Contact the Jones Media Center to discuss the many options for using media and technology in your courses.

Course Materials

Course Reserves
Request physical materials to be checked out or digitization of course materials to be placed online in your Canvas course.

Open Educational Resources
Your subject librarian or the Scholarly Publishing Librarian can help you find and use open educational resources. Apply for the Open Education Initiative for support when you are ready to adopt or create OER for a course.


Review our quick guide on copyright concerns, finding openly available materials for teaching, and sharing your research.

Contact the Library's Scholarly Communication staff for more information or assistance.


Library staff are actively involved with teaching and learning partners across campus to support you and your students’ needs for this fall term.
