Research and Instructional Support

     

Instruction

E-Reserves and Textbooks
The library staff will create online access to book chapters or articles either through direct linking to library e-resources or by digitizing print copies. These links are automatically added to the Moodle library block. Textbooks for classes are placed on reserve at the Journalism Library.

Library Course Pages
Each class is given a website that lists databases and services from the library. Students view these Library Course Pages from their MyU portal and can automatically be added to Moodle.

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.

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.

     

Research

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.

Data Management and Curation
The University Libraries assists faculty and graduate students learn how to manage, share, and preserve your research data. In addition to our data management and curation services, the Libraries will help you navigate available campus resources throughout the data lifecycle.
