Recommend Items for the Collection
You are encouraged to recommend items for our collection. We rely on your subject expertise to ensure our students have the most appropriate resources for their studies and leisure needs. We also appreciate that you have leisure needs and so will attempt to fulfill these as appropriate. To recommend items for the collection, email email@example.com.
If you have high use items that you'd like us to place on Reserve for your students, we're happy to do this. Course Reserves are ordered via the Registrar's site on Sharepoint.
We have access to a huge range of research tools at Northwestern. We are happy to come to your office and help you identify key library research resources. In addition, let us know how we can help you with your individual research and professional needs. Make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also appreciate your forwarding students to us for research assistance with their research projects. In addition, students are encouraged to follow up a class visit with an individual research consultation tailored to their information-gathering needs.
Schedule a library instruction session and introduce your students to key search strategies and evaluation techniques specific to your course projects. We can create content for your Blackboard pages, including links useful resources. Evidence shows that targeted library instruction influences student approaches to research and encourages them to think more creatively about their search for information. We'd love to help prove this!
