Faculty Toolkit


IC librarians develop collaborative relationships with faculty in order to provide appropriate services and resources to meet the information needs of both faculty and students.   Your library liaison is your person to call in the library to work with on classes, research, or anything else.  Faculty are encouraged to communicate with their liaison librarian in regard to recommended titles for inclusion in the collection.   All faculty requests are reviewed and considered for purchase at the liaison librarian's discretion, using allocated funds.  Requests for electronic book titles will be considered if they are available on a supported vendor platform. 


  • Create custom research guides for broad subject areas, specific classes or assignments
  • Assist in developing research assignments
  • Provide class-specific or assignment-specific library instruction 
  • Notify faculty of new print or electronic resources that are added to collection
  • Help your department identify and select print & electronic resources for the library
  • Provide library orientation for new faculty
