Welcome to Help

Welcome to the Help Page of The Mabee-Simpson Library.  Included are tutorials and some information about the library for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

Faculty Reserves

Faculty Reserves

To put items on reserve, complete the form below and submit it with the actual material to Camille Beary at the front desk or Office #203.  We discourage photocopies for reserves and ask that you scan all photocopies and offer them to your students via the college's Schoology Program or give your students a permanent link to the article online which is authenticated thru the college's library pages.

Library Instruction for Faculty and Classes

 

A librarian can either come to your classroom or instruct your class in #327  on the third floor of the library.  This room holds 20 comfortably.  Instruction consists of:

  • Short demonstrations of most relevant resources or a particular database: 15-20 minutes
  • Full class sessions including instruction and hands-on practice: 40 to 50 minutes
  • One-on-one or group appointments 

 

For more information about this program, contact Camille Beary, Assistant Director of The Mabee-Simpson Library.
