Welcome, TLU faculty! This guide includes:
Library Resources for Faculty FAQs
A: Faculty, staff, or students can email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the red Ask a Librarian button on the library website.
A: Contact Mark Dibble or Amelia Koford to arrange for course-integrated instruction sessions. These are also a great way for you to learn about TLU’s resources in your area! Instruction sessions can take place in the library instruction lab (20 student computers), in your classroom, or virtually.
A: First priority is given to materials that support the curriculum and academic programs of the university. Request forms can be found under the Make a Request link on the library website, or contact Mark Dibble or Dan Flores. Usually, we are able to fill request for one-time purchases such as books. For ongoing costs such as serials and subscriptions, we are only able to fill requests as money is available, but we encourage faculty to communicate with librarians about their needs.
A: Faculty can place physical items on reserve, including library books, professor’s personal books, copies of articles, games, and media.
The library does not provide electronic reserves. If you want students to use your eRacer page to access an article or ebook that the library has access to, follow the instructions here: http://bulldogs.tlu.edu/library > Help & Tutorials > Distance Learning for Faculty > To Link to a Library Resource within e-Racer
A: Email email@example.com or Sally Carroll-Ricks.
A: The TLU Library staff names and areas of responsibility are found at the Library Directory link.

TLU librarians offer in-depth research help.
Ask a Question: The system will prompt you to send a text or an email, or a live chat if a librarian is available.
During library open hours, ask at the main desk for help finding what you need or help setting up an appointment with a librarian.
Need an item that our library doesn't own? No worries, you can email the title, author and date of what you need to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a form. We can get most (but not all) articles within 2 days and many books within 4-8 days.
For more information, visit our interlibrary loan page.
If you are using an off-campus computer, you will be prompted for your last name (Not your network username but last name only) and your 8-digit TLU number.
