Stay Connected: Hunt Library Update

Hunt Library Update #9 — September 8, 2020

Welcome to Faculty

Research Librarians are available to consult with new and existing faculty about their current information needs and how best the library can support their research. Open the chat icon on the library’s website and we will direct you to your departmental liaison, give you updates on databases in your discipline, and much more!

How to check library hours

The top of the library’s website lists the daily hours for the library facility. Click on "Today’s Hours" to get to a monthly calendar featuring the facility hours and the Ask a Librarian (virtual) hours. For your convenience, our virtual "Ask a Librarian" reference service is open seven days a week, including some evenings.

Library instruction

New! If your students are struggling with library research, but you’re pressed for class time, we have the perfect solution for you! The Hunt Library is proud to present a new webinar series covering topics such as Introduction to Library Resources and Services, EagleSearch Hacks, How to Pick a Research Topic, and more. Assign students to attend the sessions for homework, extra credit, or as a recommended supplement to a lesson. Students who register for a webinar will receive a recording of the session to watch at a later time, should the original date not fit their schedule.

To request a different type of instruction, please complete the Library Instruction Request Form.

Learning objects

The Research Guide collection and library FAQ offer targeted self-service assistance.

The new Quick Tips video tutorial collection provides useful segments to insert into your course canvas.

You can always schedule a consultation with a librarian to help you select appropriate self-service materials to complement your course theme and assignments.

Free and Open Educational Resources

Need something more for your class? Hunt Library can help you find open educational resources or library resources such as book chapters, videos, simulations, and learning modules. We also publish faculty-created resources in our open access repository, Scholarly Commons. For help or more information contact
