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.
  • Assistance with Grant-Funded Research
    The library is an active participant in supporting the University and its researchers.

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!

Faculty Library Representatives

Each academic department has a librarian who collaborates with the faculty library representative to meet the research and teaching needs of the department.

To follow up on any of these services please visit us in person, or email askalibrarian@nyit.edu.
