Services for Faculty

UNE faculty members have access to all of UNE Library Services as well as specialized assistance to support teaching and scholarship.

Each academic department has been assigned a Library Liaison to assist you and ensure that the library is providing the resources and services you need.

Services to Support Teaching

LIBRARY INSTRUCTION

Classroom teaching services to support information literacy skills.

COURSE RESERVES

We make every attempt to place required reading materials on course reserve whenever possible. We also 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.

RESEARCH BY SUBJECT

Recommended resources for each program and major at UNE.

SPECIAL COLLECTIONS

Unique primary sources, archival materials and other special collections for use in the classroom or in the library.

FINDING AND EVALUATING SOURCES

Help students find and evaluate scholarly sources.

CITATION MANAGEMENT

Citation Style Guides for the most-used styles at UNE, along with citation style manuals.

RefWorks: Collect and share references, format and insert citations into papers, and automatically format reference lists.

AFFORDABLE COURSE MATERIALS

Your library liaison can help you find course materials available in the libraries’ collections, or which can be purchased by the library in electronic formats so that the whole class can have access. We can also assist you with a search for high-quality open source resources.

Services to Support Research & Scholarship

FINDING MATERIALS

We are committed to providing the resources you need for your scholarship. Request anything to which UNE Libraries does not provide access through Interlibrary Loan or contact us about purchase options. We can also assist with literature searching to support your research.

Find a quality publisher

Find the right publisher for your work. The rise of open access publishing has unfortunately seen a rise in fraudulent and questionable journals. Evaluate the legitimacy of an unfamiliar journal and avoid predatory publishers as you consider submission or editorial board work.

Understand your Author’s Rights

Publication contracts may require you to transfer all of your copyrights, which can cause you to lose control over your work. Understand your rights as an author, how to negotiate to retain your copyrights, and find open source alternatives to traditional publishers.

OPEN ACCESS

Open access repositories and journals support publication and research, and expand the reach of your work. Archive and distribute your research to a world-wide audience in UNE’s open access institutional repository DUNE:DigitalUNE.

Other Services

As UNE Employees, you also have access to all library services to support your personal and professional interests.
