Library Information for Faculty

Guide to Library Resources

Information on using the library and what we have to offer.

Library Instruction Program

Librarians are available to provide instruction on research strategies and use of library materials for your students. Presentations can be tailored to support a particular assignment or can be a general overview of effective practices and available resources. Library instruction sessions are subject to librarian availability; requests should be scheduled two weeks in advance to allow adequate time for preparation. Instructors are encouraged to attend the sessions with their classes. To schedule a library instruction session, contact your subject-specialty librarian or our library instruction coordinator.

Library Contacts by Subject Area

Research Assistance Request Form

If your students require assistance in performing in-depth research or are having trouble getting a handle on a topic or use of library resources, we can help with a individualized research assistance session. Point a student to the above link and a librarian will schedule a one-on-one session developed around that student's research topic.

Tutorials

The library maintains a number of self-guided tutorials that can be useful for those just getting acquainted with library research or with Missouri S&T's library in particular.
