Faculty Teaching & Research Services

Campbell Library partners with faculty and instructors across the Glassboro campus to support teaching and research.

Information Literacy

An information literate individual is able to:

  • Determine the extent of information needed
  • Access the needed information effectively and efficiently
  • Evaluate information and its sources critically
  • Incorporate selected information into one’s knowledge base
  • Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose
  • Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information, and access and use information ethically and legally

The libraries' instruction program aligns with Information Literacy standards established by The Middle States Commission on Higher Education and The Association of College and Research Libraries.

In-Class Instruction Sessions

Faculty members wishing to schedule an Information Literacy Instruction session for their classes are welcome to contact their subject librarian or fill out the Library Instruction Request form.

Place your request early in your planning process when your first choice date and time is more likely to be available. 

Information Literacy or Research session may be scheduled in Campbell Library’s computer lab (room 138), which contains 30 PCs. Librarians can also conduct sessions in your classroom or other computer lab.  Students access to computers during class reinforces learning.

Instruction librarians conduct class sessions based on the research needs of your students. A successful session will:

  • Address a specific assignment at a point in the semester when your students are conducting research.
  • Include the faculty member, whose presence emphasizes the importance of the research instruction.
  • Include the librarian in planning to identify likely research tools.

Virtual Instruction

Research Guides
General Research Guides for departments or disciplines are available on the library webpage.  Your Subject Librarian can create an online Guide of resources specific to your course. 

Blackboard or Canvas Participation
Librarians can be embedded into Blackboard or Canvas sites to participate in discussions about research topics, processes, and/or sources.

Faculty Consultation (Virtual or In-person)
A librarian collaborates with the faculty member on assignments to suggest resources and discuss potential research issues.

Ask-a-Librarian
Students (and faculty or staff) visit or phone the reference desk, chat with or email a librarian for research help. Please refer students to the Ask a Librarian service.

Library Research Tutorials
Online videos introduce or reinforce academic research skills such as evaluating resources, selecting a database, narrowing a topic or avoiding plagiarism.
