Research Consultations

For in-depth support with your research, make an appointment for a remote consultation via email, phone, or WebEx with a librarian who is a subject specialist in your discipline (major, minor, other subject area).

Support for Faculty

Set up Course Reserves for your courses. Determine your Fair Use rights to link that material in Moodle.

Encourage your students to get help from a librarian in seeking scholarly and popular materials to complete assignments and research projects.

Librarians continue to offer information literacy and library research instruction for your classes. Contact your subject librarian.

Your Subject Librarians continue to purchase books, videos, and other material in digital/electronic formats to support curriculum and student research. Your librarians can also support adoption of Open Educational Resources for your courses. Please contact the librarian for your subject area.

Physical Materials

Returning Physical Materials

Due dates for physical materials have been extended. Books can be returned to the book drop located at the back (north) entrance of the Armacost Library Building or by (media) mail. 

Requesting Physical Materials

Beginning June 1, 2020, Armacost Library staff began curbside pickup service for physical items in our collections. Continue to request articles and books through Interlibrary Loan; we will prioritize digital copies but also fulfill when print is available. We will continue to attempt to fulfill book purchase requests with ebooks for broader access. 

Online Materials and Tools

Armacost Library maintains access to a wealth of digital materials available remotely.

Continue to Search Armacost Resources. Search for books, journals, and video temporarily or permanently open access.

Research databases provide access to full-text articles, ebooks, videos and more.
