Embedded Librarian Program

LibrarianThe Library is pleased to offer our services as Embedded Librarians. A librarian can be added to your Canvas pages for any course and post links to library resources and relevant library instruction videos. It also allows your students direct access to a dedicated librarian to answer their research questions.

For more information visit our Embedded Librarian page.

Library Instruction

Library InstructionAlthough the library is closed, our librarians are still available to provide online library instruction sessions. These can be tailored to any subject area, course or assignment.  Just let us know what you need!  Typical sessions may cover:

  • Introduction to Library Resources
  • Research Strategies and Tips
  • Evaluating Web Resources
  • Plagiarism and Citation Help

To schedule a session for your class email us at library@sfc.edu or contact your subject liaison librarian.

Open Education Resources

OER Many studies show around two-thirds of students don't purchase a required textbook due to cost. It doesn't have to be this way! Open Education Resources (OER) are teaching materials that are freely accessible and openly licensed so anyone can use, adapt, remix, and share them.

The SFC library provides support for faculty who wish to replace expensive textbooks with OER. Check out our online OER guide for more info. If you need help getting started, submit a syllabus for review by one of our librarians who can give recommendations on available resources.


Library Guides

Library Guides Our collection of Library Guides organize and highlight relevant resources for particular subject areas. We also have tutorials to help students master a variety of skills and technologies.
