Library Policies

Chat with a librarian

Chat with a librarian is available Monday through Friday from 9:00am-5:00pm

This service was instituted in response to the COVID-19 related physical library closures.

Reference/Research appointments

The Stephen B. Luce Library maintains a reference service for students, faculty, and staff. Reference and research consultations can be booked in advance from our website. This service will provide:

  • Research assistance
  • Guidance in locating material for users physically or electronically
  • Assist users with planning a basic research methodology and/or a research strategy
  • Help students identify and evaluate reliable sources

Course Reserves

Course Reserves are items requested by faculty to be placed behind the library circulation desk for limited circulation. Only library staff are allowed behind the circulation desk. All library materials must be checked out by a student worker or librarian to patrons using a student, faculty, or staff ID. Reserves items must remain in the library and can be checked out for 4 hours at a time. Late materials checked out to students will incur an hourly fine.


Faculty: Placing Items on Reserve

Faculty members interested in placing materials on reserve can do so using the Course Reserves Request Form found on the library homepage under the Services tab.

The Course Reserves library guide reflects current classes being taught. This page will be refreshed at the beginning of each term and expire at the end of the term. It is the responsibility of individual faculty members to ensure that the Course Reserves for their classes are up to date. A reminder will be emailed to faculty ahead of each term.

Library Instruction

Requests for classes must be made using this form. Please submit one form per course section.

Due to high demand, requests for classes must be made two weeks in advance. Course instructors must be present during the library session. All library sessions will take place in Stephen B. Luce Library unless another accommodation is reached due to schedule conflicts/special requests.

You will hear from the librarian assigned to your class at least a week before the scheduled date. However, if there is a conflict on the requested date and time, you will be contacted sooner to find a time that is mutually convenient

Library Liaisons

Subject liaisons are affiliated with each academic department or program. The subject liaisons provide coordination between the College Library and the faculty and students in the College’s academic departments. The librarians who serve as subject liaisons are members of the academic faculty and play a pivotal role in the selection, acquisition, and maintenance of the resources provided by the Library. Subject liaisons are also responsible for keeping the appropriate members of the Library faculty and staff apprised about the issues and concerns that pertain to their assigned departments. In addition, they keep their colleagues up-to-date on new, or changes in, information resources related to their subject areas.
