Library Support for Journalism Faculty

Class Visits and Workshops
Schedule a classroom visit and request lessons from the Journalism Library to help students develop research competencies and become successful at finding, evaluating, and applying information for assignments.

How To Create Links to Articles
Faculty may wish to use Citation Linker to create their own links to readings or streaming videos using the licensed journals, magazines and newspapers available from the library.

Course reserves
Libary Reserve staff create print or online access for class readings using library databases or by digitizing print copies. Textbooks for journalism courses are placed on reserve at the Journalism Library.

Library Course Pages
Each Journalism class has a resource website that lists databases and services from the library. Students view these Library Course Pages from their MyU portal or instructors may wish to add them to the class Moodle.

Library Media Services
The University Libraries has a collection of videos that can be either checked out or reserved for classroom use at the Walter Library. SJMC staff also support conversion of video into portable formats for class instruction.

University Digital Conservancy
The University Libraries manages this open access repository for faculty to deposit copies of their works for long-term preservation and open access. Commercial publishers generally allow pre-print versions of articles and books to be made available in open access archives. To learn more about how copyright impacts on scholarly communication in higher education, consult the book Open Access by Peter Suber at MIT.
