Getting Started with Library Resources and Services

This guide is for faculty looking to integrate WU Libraries resources and services into classes


The best, easiest way to learn more about how the Libraries can help is to meet with your subject librarian--ideally while you're planning your syllabus, but really anytime is the right time. 


Whether you opt to meet or not, here are a few simple options for including WU Libraries in your classes:


  • Add contact info for the relevant subject area librarian to your syllabus in the campus resources section
  • Include links to relevant subject research guides (examples) on your syllabus or Canvas site
  • Send your subject librarian an introductory email with a copy of your syllabus
  • Ask your subject librarian for...
    • downloadable info pages about library resources or research habits
    • research tutorial recommendations
  • Ask your subject librarian about making an online course guide (examples: English Seminar, Psych 358, Bio 4031)
  • Ask students to meet with the subject librarian sometime during their research process
  • Tell your students about the Chat Service and FAQs 
  • Encourage your students to try a citation management program--Zotero, for example
