LWLC librarians will collaborate with you to develop research assignments and to create course guides that help students learn to find, evaluate, and use information.
Faculty and students can work with a librarian for in-depth research assistance during a research consultation. Research Consultations are available Monday-Thursday 1-5 pm.
Communicate with your liaison librarian in your subject area about your areas of interest for research and teaching. You can also suggest books for purchase. The liaison librarian will keep you posted on new materials that can be obtained to support your research.
Set up saved searches in library databases to alert you when new resources are available in your research area(s).
Come by the Information Desk to check out laptops, DVDs, audio and books. Resources are also available for check out in the Curriculum Materials Center. Need materials not owned by LWLC? ILL forms can be found in WorldCat Local. Completing this form will request materials from another library for your use.
If you have specific resources that you want to make easily available to all students in your classes, consider putting the information on reserve. Consult with Reserves staff to learn about options for making course material available electronically.
At the LWLC, we have a number of historical print and digital collections to support your research and classroom needs. ASU is also home to the National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African American Culture. Consult with a librarian on how to access and incorporate these resources into your courses.
LWLC is part of the Montgomery Higher Education Consortium (MHEC) which includes: Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM), Faulkner University, Huntingdon College and Troy University. Through WorldCat, you can do a single catalog search across all libraries. You can make an ILL request or use your ASU Faculty ID card with a consortium sticker to borrow materials directly from these libraries.
