The Manhattanville College Library staff and collections support faculty members in delivering instruction and conducting original research.
Instructors can request Library Instruction and Research Support for their class, in the library or their classroom by filling out the online Library Instruction Request form. Requests must be made at least a week in advance.
Faculty are strongly encouraged to only assign online course materials until the COVID-19 pandemic has resolved.
Linking to Library Resources - Articles, e-books, and videos from the library's subscription databases are excellent resources for curriculum support.
Your library liaison can help you locate appropriate materials to support any course.
Physical/Hard Copy Reserves- The library helps instructors make physical course readings and videos available to students.
Electronic Reserves- The eTern team consults instructors on making electronic materials available, usually through Blackboard. Here is a link for faculty to request help with putting course materials online.
Each Academic Department at Manhattanville has a liaison librarian to support the department. Liaisons develop relationships with faculty to support courses by preparing Library Guides, conducting specialized library instruction for classes, and updating faculty on new library resources. Please see Academic Department Liaisons to find the liaison for your department.
Request a Purchase- The library makes every effort to obtain materials requested and recommended by faculty. Request can be made using the Request a Purchase form or by contacting your liaison librarian.
Library room reservations will be suspended in Fall, 2020, to maintain necessary social distancing and promote health and safety.
Resuming in January, 2021, Faculty members can reserve certain library spaces for individual class meetings or to use non-circulating materials. Other faculty uses include lectures and committee meetings. Please see below for special procedures to reserve LIB-213 (CTLS) and LIB-206 (ePortfolio lab).
The library can help faculty with research needs including:
• Research refreshers on new library databases or new searching strategies
• Online searching on specific topics
• Locating hard-to-find materials or out-of-print materials for your courses or your research
• Contact your Academic Department Liaison for more information.
