Faculty & Staff Library Checklist

Before the semester begins...

 Update your library account. Faculty and staff library accounts expire on June 30 each year. Update your account in person at the library, or use our convenient online form.

 Place materials in Course Reserve for your students. A copy of your required textbook, DVDs, and other materials will be available to students for in-library use only. Forms are available in the library and online.

 Update your free subscriptions. The library provides access to The New York Times for faculty, staff, and students, and The Chronicle of Higher Education for faculty and staff. Subscriptions expire each year for faculty and staff. Instructions are in this guide.

 Collaborate with a librarian. Request an embedded librarian, schedule in-person or virtual library instruction, and/or request a custom Research Guide for your class. Use our online form to learn more.

 Remind students to complete the Online Library Orientation. The orientation link is on the library homepage under "Get Help," where you will also find library tutorials, the library's Question Center, and links to the ATTIC and the Writing Center pages. Students, faculty, and staff also can request one-on-one library tours and get help with learning how to use GALILEO and other online resources.


As the semester wraps up...

 Return Coastal library materials by June 30. Books borrowed from other USG institutions or through interlibrary loan may have earlier due dates. 

 Collect any materials you have in Course Reserve if they will not be needed for the next semester. Use the online form or ask for a form in the library.
