Faculty & Staff: Info for Faculty & Staff


Information Literacy & Instruction Program

Taylor Memorial Library's reference librarians teach students to become mindful consumers of information. Through foundational information literacy (IL) learning and personal attention throughout their academic career, students learn to seek quality answers to satisfy their intellectual curiosities.

Course Reserves

Faculty/Staff may designate items (either from the library collection or your personal copy) to be Course Reserves, and thus only available for use within the library or for limited periods of time, so as to maximize student access to that resource.
