Faculty Toolkit

Your starting place for faculty library services.

Supporting Your Scholarship

  • Library Orientation
    Stop by and learn about all the resources you and your students need to know. Teaching online? Schedule a webcam chat and we’ll take you on a virtual tour.
  • Find a PDF
    If you have a DOI, Direct Object Identifier, or PMID simply enter it and access your article in full text. When articles are not available you will be presented with an Interlibrary Loan form.
  • Document Delivery
    Looking for information to support your research and grant writing? We can provide it through Document Delivery, or borrow it from another library through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
  • Research Consultations
    The library provides 1-on-1 research assistance for faculty and staff. Your department's library liaisons are here to help you locate and access research materials, identify publication venues for your articles, and more.
  • Technology Consultations
    Our librarians are more than just research specialists — they’re also tech-savvy educators. We’re happy to share our expertise in using tools like Google Apps for Education, Zoom.us, Camtasia, Prezi, and much more! 

Supporting Your Teaching

  • Course Reserves
    Special items, journal articles, books, and personal copies to be used for particular courses may be placed in the Reserve Collections of any NYIT library, or scanned as E-Reserves. Current editions of major texts for courses will be held on reserve, where possible, each semester.
  • Resource Recommendations
    Are we missing an important work in your field, or required text for your students? Help us build our collection! You can recommend the purchase of library materials. 
  • Information Literacy Sessions
    Want to improve the quality of your students’ research? Bring them in for an instruction session tailored to the course focus and the assigned research project. 
  • Student Research Consultations
    Assign students a library visit on their own time, we’ll work with you to make sure they get all the information they need. 
  • Guides
    With as little as a detailed syllabus, we can create and maintain a course, subject or topic guide that will be available to you and your students semester after semester. 
  • Video Tutorials
    We’ve prepared short videos to guide your students. Insert them into your courses. We are also happy to create a video just for you!
