Support for your teaching and research

Faculty Services & Resources

Welcome faculty!

We're here to provide support for your teaching and research, and we'd like to highlight a few of our services that may interest you. 


Contact Subject Librarians:

Provide class syllabi to Subject Librarians and contact them for library research instruction, research assistance, and appointments with students (e.g., through Starfish). Syllabi help librarians with collection development, instruction, and  research assistance.

Research Guides:

Assist students in using library resources like searching databases, requesting interlibrary loans, and tutorials. Provide links to our Subject Area Research Guides and the Distance Assistance Research Guide.

Research Databases:

Peruse an A-Z list of library-subscribed databases where you can sort by subject.

Create Permalinks:

Create & use proxied Permalinks to licensed library journal articles within emails or Blackboard. The link provides statistical counts of material usage for the library.

Watch Tutorials:

Ask your subject librarian for the best tutorials for your subject. View some general tutorials.

Create Course Packs: 

Work with the Bookstore to create Course Packs of unlicensed library content rather than expecting every student to get these materials through interlibrary loan.

Use UND Email: 

Encourage students to utilize their UND emails for library and UND policy reasons. Students must use their UND email for interlibrary loan.

Contact Information: 

Encourage students to maintain up-to-date contact information in Campus Connection. The library uses this information for mailing student interlibrary loan materials.
