Services for Faculty
Roesch Library provides the following services to support faculty teaching, course design, and research.
The Librarians at Roesch Library are committed to helping both faculty and students find and use the proper tools to support research and teaching. We offer individualized instruction sessions by appointment, class demonstrations, and hands-on sessions for your courses.Top
Roesch Library instruction librarians are committed to the University's common purpose of developing graduates who possess the critical communication, reasoning, and information skills they need to function effectively in their academic, community, and professional lives.
Librarians can work with academic departments and individual professors to develop the general education competencies necessary to complete the first and second-year courses required by a student's academic unit. Librarians can also help with the implementation of Graduation Competencies, the extensions of the general competency areas as required for successful research specific to the academic discipline, area of specialization, or external standards established by professional organizations and accrediting bodies.
Departments and individual faculty are encouraged to ask for assistance in incorporating all or specific components of the Information Literacy competency into their programs and syllabi, through class instruction or resource guides tailored specifically to courses or topics.

Study carrels are small rooms designed to be used as a quiet research or reading space. There are a minimum number set aside to be reserved on a daily, first come basis available through the Circulation desk free of charge (time limitations may apply during certain periods of the year).
There are also a limited number of study carrels for Faculty and Graduate students to reserve on an academic year basis. To be eligible, Faculty must be able to provide a brief description of a current research project that would demonstrate a need for extensive on-site use of library resources. Grad students must be able to provide a letter from their advisor confirming they have completed their course work and are currently writing their thesis or dissertation.
If you are interested in applying for one of these carrels, please contact the Operations Coordinator at 229-4228. If your application is approved, the yearly fee is $100.00.
*Please note: Although study carrels are lockable, we recommend you do not leave items of value in them. Books and material still need to be checked out at Circulation before being kept in the study carrel. Issues involving lighting, air temperature or trash pickup may be addressed to the Operations Coordinator at 229-4228.Top
Materials can be placed on course reserves and/ or electronic reserves. Course Reserves are hard copy materials held in Roesch Library and may be checked out from the circulation desk for varying lengths of time as determined by the instructor. Electronic Reserves allow instructors to make selected material available to their students electronically through Isidore.Top
