Welcome to the Faculty Resources LibGuide!

Specially designed for Butler University Faculty, this Guide provides information, resources, instructions, policies, and more that will help our faculty and our library work together and help each other do their jobs better.


Faculty Development

The libraries offer one-on-one or group instruction to faculty who want to refine their research skills, or who may want to learn about new library resources.

Librarians are also available to consult with faculty on writing and updating research assignments to make them more effective for library research.

Please contact your Library Liaison for more information or to schedule a session.


Instruction Sessions

Faculty may request to have a library instruction session in their classroom, in the library, or in a computer lab. This type of instruction helps students learn about library resources such as Academic Search Premier or the Online Catalog, as well as helping them build information literacy skills such as evaluating sources. Sessions that cover discipline-specific resources are also available, and concepts such as journal and Internet evaluation can be included.

Please contact your Library Liaison to schedule a session and please include the following information: Course Name, Date/Time Desired, Location (classroom, library, or computer lab), and any specific topics or databases you would like covered.


Ordering Materials for the Libraries

To request that specific books, DVDs, and other materials be ordered for the collections, please email your requests to your Subject Liaison.  Your liaison will most likely be forwarding on your email or reentering the information in a separate library ordering system, so please avoid sending us catalogs with items circled if possible.

You can also use our Books in Print database to read reviews, select titles, create a list of order requests, and email the list to your Subject Liaison. You will be required to create a My Favorites password before you can create and email lists. Individual titles can be emailed without signing on to My Favorites. Please remember to include your name in the comments field so we know who submitted the request.

We are planning to implement a new system to pass new title information (with reviews!) via email in order to avoid duplicate entries on our end and hopefully remove the Books in Print complexities from the process - stay tuned!
