Teacher Information

We invite all teachers and their classes to learn more about the library’s online databases and print resources. The librarians can assist you and your students by:

  • Creating Subject Guides highlighting the library’s print and online resources. Current Subject Guides are listed below. If you do not see what you need, we are happy to develop new ones for you.

    ·  English 
    ·  Music and Arts 
    ·  Foreign Language 
    ·  Religion
    ·  Science and Math
    ·  Social Studies

  • Developing a selection of books related to topics covered in your class. These can be made available during a class visit to the library or held on reserve for your students.
  • Providing an overview of specific online databases that your students can use to do research.  We are able to:
    • Come to your classroom to make a presentation.  
    • Meet with you individually so you can then work with your students yourself. 
    • Accommodate your class in the library group study room (seats up to 40) for a presentation.

In addition, please note the Library Databases are available 24 hours a day via the Internet. Usernames and passwords are needed for access off campus – a list is available in the library.

To arrange a time for either an in-class presentation or a visit to the library, please come by, email or call the library anytime between 7:15 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  We respectfully request at least 24 hours notice as students are free to use the group study room when it has not been reserved for class use.

Please provide the following information:

  • Teacher name.
  • Requested date and time.
  • Desired Location: [Classroom # or Library Group Study Room]
  • If you need more than 40 seats for students.
  • Please also indicate if you would like any books pulled and placed on a cart or put on reserve for your class.
  • Please also indicate whether you would like a presentation on using the online databases for research.

Thank you for the information you can provide to make your visit to the library a successful one!
