Library Services for Faculty at St. Lawrence College

In addition to Library Services available to all patrons including students and employees, services available to Faculty include:

Online Forms for Faculty Use

Teaching and Learning Support

We can help you:

  • Use library databases and Google Scholar effectively and efficiently
  • Sign up for alerts to help you stay up-to-date with new research in your field
  • Find materials to support current and new course development
  • Develop library collections to support your course and assignments
  • Create permanent links to articles, eBooks, and online video in Blackboard
  • Access materials not owned by SLC through interlibrary loan

If you are pursuing an advanced degree at another institution, we recommend that you seek help first from your institution’s library services, as their collections will be designed to support your program.

Online Tutorials - Alternatives to In-Class Sessions

We understand the value of your classroom time. Students develop research skills over time, so consider integrating relevant learning opportunities throughout your course or program. The library provides a variety of online resources and tutorials to supplement your course content. Videos, quizzes, handouts and guides on every step of the research process are available for you to share with your students.

Information Literacy Toolkit for Faculty

SLC Library videos on Youtube provide an orientation or "tour of the library" and how to get started searching the college library. We encourage faculty to share these videos with all students. 

Library Workshops and In-Class Orientation Sessions

Library workshops support teaching and learning by providing students with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the resources available at SLC, learn about the research process, and develop research and information literacy skills. For writing and citing workshops, contact the  Academic Support Centres.


  • In-class visits should be requested at least two weeks in advance to ensure staff availability. Requests are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and are dependent on staff availability. In the event we cannot accommodate your request, alternate resources will be offered.
  • In-depth research workshops should be requested as far in advance as possible. Library staff will request a meeting with you to discuss the details of your major assignment(s) and your learning outcomes for the session. 
  • We expect faculty and student attendance during library sessions. The professor's role is to ensure clarity of assignment expectations. 
  • We appreciate your commitment to creating an engaging learning experience for students.
