Welcome to the B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library
Welcome to the Library's LibGuide for Faculty.
First a general word about the Library - we are here to serve you, the faculty. We do this in several ways: by assisting you with your teaching needs (including meeting the instructional and research needs of your students) and by assisting you with your research.
In this regard, this guide is intended to alert you to the services we offer and to help you navigate the library's website.
Much of this information is given in the links below. Use the tabs above to find additional information. Click here to find out What's New in the Library, and this includes events, exhibits, teleconferences, training sessions, new databases and other resources.
Please stop by, introduce yourself, bring your ID and get a barcode to activate that as your library card. While students are given 28 days, faculty can circulate books for 120 days. Set up an account to renew books online, check barcode status, and of hold requests.
Get ready to use your Library with its 1.2 million books, 90,000 e-journals and 300+ databases.
