Services to Faculty
How much do you know about CCBC Library?
A good way to introduce your new students to the Library is to arrange a Library Orientation session, when librarians provide a tour of the facilities, an overview of our services and an introduction to B-VR-PAC, the Library online catalog. At that time, students can also obtain their library card, which allows them to use the Library computers and access our research databases from home. To schedule a Library orientation session, please fill out the Faculty Request for Group Library Instruction form and contact the reference librarian two weeks before the date to reserve a time slot.
For more in-depth instruction, sessions can be tailored specifically to your course assignments. Librarians can teach students how to use reference materials, online databases, periodical indexes, relevant Web sites, and much more. To schedule an instruction session, please fill out the Faculty Request for Group Library Instructionform and contact the reference librarian two weeks before the date to reserve a time slot.
Faculty may also set up individual appointments with the librarian to discuss course assignments, library resources and instruction, research needs, student learning outcomes, etc., by calling Terri Gallagher at (724) 480-3427.
Textbooks on reserve can be very helpful to your students. To place materials on reserve for your class, please fill out a Reserve Book Form, available at the Customer Service desk. At least 24 hour advance notice must be given to place materials on reserve. For questions about course reserves, please contact Daren Tadich, (724)480-3408.
Materials located at any of the Beaver County public libraries can be sent to CCBC Library through the REQUEST link on the online catalog. They will usually arrive at CCBC Library within two business days.
Books or articles that are not available locally may be requested through the interlibrary loan service. Questions about interlibrary loan should be directed to the library, (724) 480-3442.
Suggestions for library materials
CCBC librarians welcome faculty suggestions for new titles relevant to specific courses. Please contact the library and request that Library Book Requisition Forms be sent to you, or email the librarian.
