Library Services for Faculty at St. Lawrence College

Contact your campus library for more information. In addition to Library Services available to all patrons, services available to Faculty include:

Faculty Classroom & Research 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.

  • Books and eBooks

Classroom Instruction
