Library Services for Faculty

The Chan Shun Centennial library is your portal to resources for research and teaching. Please contact your library liaison if you need help with the following tasks or anything else.

Use the Facility

The library has spaces where you can conduct your research, teach, and hold meetings. A computer classroom, laptops, wireless Internet connection and photocopiers are also available. The building is open during convenient hours. See the floor plans to locate the best place for your intended use of the facility. We encourage you to reserve facilities for group work.

Find Resources for Teaching and Research

Use the Library Catalog to search for materials in the collection and see the floor plans to find their physical location in the building. We also subscribe to journals and databases so you can have access to the best content both in print and electronically. Ask a librarian if you need help locating or citing sources.

Preview, Request and Reserve Resources

Whether you preview resources under review, request a resource or make a recommendendation, we welcome your input in building the collection and improving library services. You may find Choice Reviews Online to be a useful resource in selecting and recommending library materials to support your curriculum. You can also place materials on reserve to make sure they remain in the building for your students.

Instruction and Support for Your Students

Please contact your library liaison to schedule an in-class presentation. We can prepare instructional sessions to help your students find, evaluate and use resources relevant to a particular course or project. You can also remit your students to your library liaison so they can get such a service out of class. In addition, we can prepare tagged web bookmarks for your classes or projects.

Borrow Books, and Other Materials

All faculty and staff are automatically granted borrowing privileges. Just show your ID card at the front desk to check out materials. See the library's policy to learn about loan periods. You can also request materials from other libraries or we can issue you a card so you can borrow from other libraries directly. Sign in to your account to see what items you have taken on loan and to renew them.
