Services & Spaces

Services for Faculty

Collections, services and spaces to support your teaching and scholarship.

Teaching Support

Library Instruction
Research and Teaching Librarians help your students develop the critical information literacy skills they need to select and evaluate resources for academic research with in-class, in-library, or remote instruction.
Library Resources You Can Share
Look for the permalink symbol when sharing library resources with your students. Sharing links, not PDFs, helps maintain compliance with our subscription licenses and accurately tracks usage. Sharing a downloaded PDF counts as one use, while a shared link shows use by a whole class.
Primary Sources & Special Collections
Invite Education and Outreach Archivist Cathleen Miller to introduce your students to research with primary sources and connect them to the rich contents of our archival collections.
Services for Students
We support student learning with our collections and research assistance services, including tutorials on research skills, evaluating sources, search strategy, formatting and managing citations, and individual research help. See our services for students and services for online students for more detail on how we can help.

Affordable Course Materials

Course Reserves
We make every attempt to place required reading materials on course reserve whenever possible, either as physical books for use in the library or as e-books. We welcome instructor copies in order to provide students with access to as many of their required materials as possible. See our Course Reserve Guidelines for details.
Library Resources in the Classroom
Your subject librarian can help you find course materials available in the libraries’ collections, or which can be purchased by the library in electronic formats so your whole class can have access at no cost to them!
Open Educational Resources
UNE is a member of the Open Education Network. We can help you find, evaluate, or even create high-quality open source resources which can be freely used and adapted to your needs.

Research & Scholarship Support

Research Support
We are committed to providing the resources you need for your scholarship and can support you as you develop your search strategy. We offer unlimited borrowing from our collections and subscritption library materials. Request anything we don’t have access to through Interlibrary Loan or make a purchase request.
Publishing Support
We can help you assess impact factors, evaluate the legitimacy of an unfamiliar journal, and avoid predatory publishers as you consider submission or editorial work. We can also help with fair use assessment and questions about copyright. Contact Scholarly Communications Research & Teaching Librarian Sonya Durney for assistance.
Open Access
Our institutional repository DUNE: DigitalUNE is available to all UNE faculty as an open-access publishing platform for your work. Contact Digital Access Librarian Bethany Kenyon for more information.

Subject Librarian

Your subject librarian is here to support your research and teaching needs. We can collaborate with you on collections development, attend faculty meetings to present on resources or issues, and provide individualized library and information literacy instruction to your students.
