Watch an overview of our services for faculty here. 

Course Reserves

Print Reserves

The library tries to keep one copy of every required undergraduate course textbook in our Course Reserves. We work with the IIT Bookstore to maintain this collection, so it is vital that you submit your course texts to the Bookstore as early as you possibly can. You can also complete the forms on our Course Reserves page for your textbooks. 

Electronic Reserves

Electronic reserves should be uploaded into the BlackBoard Content Management System. If you have questions about BlackBoard, contact Brad Katz at IIT Online for further assistance bkatz2@iit.edu Phone: 312.567.7213

For more information on deadlines, policies and procedures visit the Textbook policy web page.

Library Instruction

Integrating library instruction into your class provides the context that students need to connect the importance of library research into their academic career. View our faculty instruction page to get an idea of the what is available to faculty. Better yet, customize your session(s) to suit the needs of your students and course content. Unsure of what will work best for your class? Contact us for assistance.

Research Guides

A recent Project Information Literacy study stated that

85% of students said the hardest part of a research assignment was knowing where to start.

Fix that with a research guide. We can create one for your class that focuses on what the students will need to complete your assignments. Students love these guides because they alleviate the anxiety of wondering if they are using the wrong resources.

Examples

  • Communications 111: Polls students on their knowledge of library resources and provides an overview.
  • Political Science 353:  Students were tasked with multiple research papers that required scholarly journals and current news.
  • Public Administration 508: An all-Chinese cohort that needed to find government documents, empirical studies and more for their final project.
