Library Resources for Faculty: Services & Programming

Course Reserves

The library offers both electronic and physical reserve services to make available supplemental materials that represent a small portion of course materials for students. Requests should allow up to 7 business days to complete and must comply with copyright laws (i.e. typically no more than 10% of a book). We do not purchase textbooks for the collection, but will gladly put a copy you provide on reserve.

Please submit the completed form directly to For more details about Reserves procedures, check out our reserves webpage.

Library Citation Tools

Students, faculty, & staff are welcome to use the library's citation resources. The library has citations guides for the following styles:

Many library databases as well as the library catalog provide citations in various styles. Citation Machine can also help format citations. Of course any citations should be checked against citation manuals.

Or if you're looking for something more robust, Mendeley is a citation management system that allows you to organize citations, store PDFs of articles, cite, and communicate with other scholars. It can be accessed via any web browser and downloaded as a desktop client. The web and desktop versions are meant to be used together.

During the academic year (end of August to mid-May), the Reference Desk is staffed by library professionals 5 days a week. Monday-Thursday from 9am-8pm (1pm-5pm on call), and Friday from 9am-1pm.
