This page is to make faculty aware of the online services the library offers, particularly in the time of COVID-19.
We may be closed for COVID-19, but we are still offering library services!
The librarians are available to collaborate with you for online library instruction. Information sessions are tailored to fit your assignments and the needs of your students. A library instruction session can be tailored to fit the needs of your students by:
We will work with you to provide live synchronous sessions through Zoom with short Canvas modules or recorded sessions with short Canvas modules for you to assign to your students. We can even offer a combination of both live and recorded sessions. We're open to your ideas and working with you to best meet the needs of your students. As always, you must be present for live sessions. Please sign up at least one week in advance and a librarian will be in contact with you.
The librarians have recently created a variety of modules, made available through the CCC_Library Canvas Page. The updated modules provide students the opportunity to learn the skills to begin research, understand types of sources, evaluate web sources, search academic databases, and avoid plagiarism. Each of the modules are badged and include instructions on how students can collect and submit the badge in a Canvas assignment. So, please feel free to include these modules as an assignment or extra credit in your course. To give your students access, please add the CCC_Library tab in the Navigation settings of your course.
Soon, you will be able to request materials from the library’s physical collection for curbside checkout. These items will be available for request through the library’s OneSearch catalog. After you request the items, library staff will pull the items, notify you when those items are ready, and work with you to set up an appointment for curbside checkout. Curbside Checkout will be available on Mondays and Thursdays. More information about this will be available in the coming weeks.
We offer many research guides through the library website on various topics. Research guides compile a variety of resources and information on a topic and can help students to focus their research by showing them what resources would be most helpful on the topic they are researching.
We've created many guides in conjunction with faculty members and we would be happy to work with you! Please contact the library for questions or to begin collaborating with us on a new research guide.
Please take a look at a couple of examples of guides below.
We offer online options for you and your students to connect with a librarian one-on-one!
