Faculty Information

General information for faculty of Emmanuel College regarding the policies and practices of the Shaw-Leslie Library.

Library Instruction

Freshmen enrolled in the Freshmen Seminar course receive basic instruction in using the library and available resources. In addition to this, we offer a Library Instruction Program tailored to course curricula and class assignments. Instruction classes are designed to teach information literacy skills and introduce students to effective use of print and electronic sources for research. We focus on:
  • How to Research a Topic - including how to identify a topic, choose appropriate resources and develop a search strategy.
  • Locating and Retrieving Materials - including using the library catalog, GALILEO databases and Inter-Library Loan (ILL).
  • Evaluating Sources - including identifying scholarly materials and locating authoritative information on the Internet.

We would be happy to design a session tailored to your class assignments or work with you to develop assignments that incorporate information literacy skills and library resources. To request an instruction session, please contact Austina Jordan.

Journal Table of Contents

We receive about a hundred journals and magazines in print form. As a service to our faculty, we will scan and email a copy of the table of contents of a newly arrived issue. Send your name and the title/s of the journals/magazines you would like to keep up with to Deborah Millier
