How can/why should I get a librarian to talk to my class?

Librarians are available to teach subject specific databases and resources, how to effectively use the Internet, how to find journal articles, and more.

How can I have the library keep/set aside materials for my class?
Woodbury University Library’s course reserves service provides access to supplementary course materials in support of the University’s academic mission. Instructors place items in the library's course reserves collection at the beginning of each semester to ensure the availability of materials that are to be used by the class members in a specific course. Due to space limitations, reserve materials will be available only for the semester in which the class is taught.
Learn more, and place a reserves request, on the Course Reserves page.
Does the library have or buy textbooks?
Textbooks that are required for Woodbury courses are generally considered to be part of the student's expected cost of education. For reasons detailed in our textbook policy, Woodbury University Library is unable to acquire textbooks. However, an instructor may choose to place a personal copy of a textbook on reserve for a specific course; the textbook will be returned to the instructor at the end of the term. If a faculty member would like to work with the librarian assigned to their discipline to identify potential open (access) textbooks, please let us know.
Most library materials are loaned to faculty members for a semester. Exceptions: DVDs, videos, periodicals. Please bring your Woodbury ID/library card with you when you check out library materials or equipment.
How do I get a Woodbury ID?
You'll find everything you need to know on the Woodbury ID Cards page.
How do I copy & print in the library?
Library photocopy machines require a copy/print account, which can be set up in Miller Hall, Room 204 (M204). When signing up for an account, be sure to specify that you will need to use it in the library. Color and B&W copiers and scanners are located in the Library Annex, room L109.
Who is my department's librarian?
Each academic department has a liaison librarian to work collaboratively with faculty members in order to develop library collections, assist with research efforts, curricular needs, and to answer questions regarding library service, policies and procedures. Please feel free to contact your liaison at any time for information or for assistance in using the library, to request course specific library instruction, research assistance, or to submit a purchasing suggestion.
