Faculty Services Spotlight: Research Services and Instruction

Written by Leanne Hillery, Assistant Librarian

Faculty Services graphicWith the start of the new academic year, your Library liaisons invite you to contact them about the research and instruction services that are available to afaculty, adjunct faculty, and students. In addition to answering questions about Library policies and procedures, the liaisons assist with ordering new Library materials and providing research assistance and instruction to faculty and students. Some of the available services include:

  • Assisting faculty with personal research
  • Instructional support to individual courses through Library workshops presented in the classroom
  • Instruction sessions for distance students via Wimba
  • Train new graduate assistants in research methods and the use of Library services
  • Provide individual instruction to faculty in the use of specific databases or materials

In addition to offering research assistance and instruction, Library liaisons are also subject specialists. Links to resources selected for their applicability to each discipline at Regent may be found on the Library’s subject page.

**ANNOUNCING A NEW SERVICE**
INFORMATION LITERACY CONSULTATIONS

The Library now offers assistance in constructing assignments that promote information literacy. Faculty may consult with their liaisons on methods of incorporating information literacy competency into specific course assignments. Librarians can assist in suggesting activities and instructional techniques that will increase your students’ ability to locate, evaluate, and use source material in their assignments.
