Services for Faculty and Staff
Information Literacy Instruction Sessions
The library offers instruction sessions on a variety of library and information literacy topics. These sessions can range from a general introduction of library resources including our facilities, online catalog and databases, to a study of advanced research methods. Each session can be customized to fit the needs of your students and classes. To dowload a class request form, click here.
Blackboard Class Support
We provide personalized support for classes using the Blackboard Learning System. A librarian can serve as a "personal librarian" to your class using the Blackboard forums to answer questions and assist students.
The library has added several streaming video databases featuring titles from the History Channel and PBS as well as Films for the Humanities and Sciences. They can be viewed on our Streaming Video page.
Several topic-specific research guides are available online. We would appreciate any suggestions or recommendations from faculty on the topics and resources provided. We can also create course-specific pages; please contact the library to ask for assistance.
Each semester the library will hold student workshops on a variety of topics. Some instructors have previously offered students extra credit for attending these workshops. To view a schedule of available workshops check the library's Workshops page.
Chat and Email Support
Librarians are available by email or our chat feature to answer any questions you or your students might have. Visit the Get Help Now page for more information.
Interlibrary Loan Service
Items can be borrowed from other CAC libraries as well as all Pinal County Public Libraries through the Online Catalog. If an item is not available from our sites then it can be requested from libraries outside the CAC system. Orders might take some time to arrive, so be sure to make requests in advance.
Faculty members can place class materials on reserve for student use. To download a copy of the Reserve Item form click here. Bring the completed form in to the library to complete the request.
Request and Recommend Materials
The library is continually adding new items to its collections. We welcome and encourage faculty requests for material that support your curriculum. Email or call the library to place a request.
