Guide to Resources for Faculty Research and Development


The library is here to provide faculty with the best research support for classes and research. In this guide you will find information on a variety of services and resources for instruction. Additional information for using OER resources is available on our FlipFinder guide.

Library Services Available for Faculty

Many library services are available for all faculty and adjunct faculty. If you don't see what you need, please ask us:

  • Most departments have a library partner who work with faculty to develop the library collection. Don't hesitate to reach out to your faculty or library partner if you have ideas for purchases.
  • If you'd like to request materials from other libraries, we have an excellent interlibrary loan program.
  • You may also put course items on reserve for your students.
  • Schedule a face-to-face or virtual instruction session for your class.
  • Get help with your own research by using the chat on the library's homepage or scheduling a research consultation with a librarian.
  • Do you have a copyright question? Please visit our copyright guide or ask Kim Olson-Kopp for help,, 608-796-3268.

The library space has many study and study rooms, as well as an Einstein Bagels coffee shop that, when closed, serves as a 24/7 computer lab.
