Library 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 research topics, searching for information, evaluating information, citing sources and more.

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. For more info see: Textbooks on Reserve.
