"Lyon College engages in a comprehensive, systematic, and regular process of assessment to ensure the offering of curricular and co-curricular programs and support services of superior quality in a personalized setting." This is from the college's assessment page and accordingly, the library follows suit.
Posted below are annual surveys of students and faculty and staff that assess the library's effectiveness in providing quality resources and services. This is by all means not the only assessment method the library uses, but this one is easy to view and understand at a glance.
A big thank you goes to all the staff at Lyon who pushed this survey to our students via the Lyon College app and the Lyon newsletter. Thanks to the 122 students who participated and we know Shelby is happy because she won the drawing for 100 dollars. Every year the library surveys target groups consisting of Freshman/Sophomore, Junior/Senior, and finally Faculty. The results are used to to find out what improvements need to be made in the physical and digital library.
Interlibrary Loan. For any items that we do not own, but you need for research, please fill out the ILL Request form that you see in the WorldCat search result for the item. Or email email@example.com with the bibliographic information on the item. Physical copies of books can be acquired for local faculty, staff and students. Only digital copies of articles can be acquired for non-locals. If retrieving a physical ILL item, we will allow your entrance to Anna’s office. Please return physical items to the book return in the breezeway.
Curbside pickup. We are implementing curbside pickup and books can be ordered for pickup at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll notify you when they are on the cart which will be rolled into the breezeway. They will already be checked out in your name and all you have to do is pick them up!
Returned books should be returned in the wall slot which is also in the breezeway entrance on the right when facing the library.
Use WorldCat Discovery to find most of what you'll need for your research needs. It's the search box in the upper left corner! If that doesn't work, try the A-Z blue box.
Reserves. Because of Covid the reserve collection has been disbanded for this academic year. Please check with the librarians if you need to order an ebook or streaming media. Additionally, documents can be scanned and links loaded into Schoology.
