Services for Faculty

As partners in teaching and learning, we help you find the best information for your students.

A Librarian Just for You

We can help you navigate the depth and breadth of our online and physical libraries, so that you can connect students with the resources they need most for excelling with their projects, papers and assignments.

We love to meet with you to make recommendations for the best databases for your students or provide tips on how to integrate library services into Canvas or your in-person class.

SRJC Librarians are also available to meet with your classes on a variety of topics, including developing reserach topics, searching for information, evaluating information, citing sources and more.

Additional Services

Research Databases  


We have over 40 databases of online content, including ebooks, academic journals, popular magazines, streaming media and other specialty content.

Use Smart Search to search across most of our content at once or browse for individual databases.

Get in touch with your library liaison to learn about the best resources for your discipline.

 

Media Services 


Media Services provides technology support to classrooms, as well as help with media production and events.

SRJC Libraries also has an extensive DVD collection (searchable through Smart Search), as well as streaming media available through Films on Demand and Kanopy. Please contact Katrina Smith for help with streaming media.

Course Reserves 


Faculty can place materials on reserve at both Doyle and Mahoney Libraries.

Almost anything you'd like your students to read or use can be placed on reserve. Reserve items are given shorter borrowing periods so that everyone in your class gets a chance to use them. You determine the loan period when you place an item on reserve for your class.

Make a Request 


If you would like to request a book for SRJC Libraries to purchase, please submit a request form.

Turnitin 


SRJC IT Department provides access to Turnitin, a plagiarism detection software, for SRJC Faculty.

If you need an account for the non-Canvas version of Turnitin, please contact Erin Daniels.

If you are using Turnitin with Canvas, you do not need an account to be set up for you. SRJC Distance Education has a great set of Turnitin/Canvas instructions.

InterLibrary Loan 


We can borrow books and obtains copies of articles from other libraries when these items are not part of our library collections. Please see our InterLibrary Loan page for more information and request forms.
