Library Information for Faculty
Faculty can check out items for the semester (15 weeks). A valid library card account is required.
CCRI librarians teach classes in information literacy, library skills, and the use of research materials at the instructor's request. Refer to the Library Instruction page for more information, including request forms.
Please provide detailed information about the course or assignment so that the librarians can tailor the session to your coursework.
Individual instruction and assistance are also available. Refer to the Library Contact information on the library’s home page for more information.
Remote Learning Support
CCRI librarians have created an extensive collection of online material to support remote learning. These include video tutorials, library handouts, and PowerPoint lectures. Refer to the Library Contact information on the library’s home page for more information.
Faculty can make books and media available to their students by placing the items on Reserve. Fill out a Reserve form, or contact the Access Services department at your campus for more information.
Reference and Research Assistance
Faculty have access to books and online articles from the library home page. CCRI’s membership in the HELIN consortium allows students and faculty to borrow books from other libraries if they are not available at CCRI.
For items not available through HELIN, request an Interlibrary Loan for the book or article.
For an overview of electronic resources available, refer to the A-Z Databases page. Use the Subject dropdown box to locate your discipline or program.
View our Interlibrary Loan Policy and links to Request Forms for items not available from the Library Catalog.
The CCRI Library encourages faculty to recommend material for the library that will support students’ coursework.
Use the Material Recommendation form to forward your request to the Collection Development Coordinator at the appropriate campus.
Recommendations are subject to adequate funding.
