The Information Behind Healing Is @ Your Library

This guide is for SFP campus faculty who want to learn more about using library resources in their online and in-person classes and instruction.  If you need help with something not featured here, please email me with suggestions or questions!

Items in our CIRCULATION and REFERENCE collections do require checkout. Please use the online self-checkout form when borrowing circulating items.

DO NOT re-shelve any library items borrowed (Reference/Circulation). This not only causes incorrect shelving, but is also a missed opportunity to track the utilization of collections.

Note: In order to utilize the Evidence Based Practice (EBP) Tools on Ovid, you will need to create an account using their online form. Click the "EBP Tools" link in the "Useful SMU Library/AII Links" box.

Librarian/Faculty Collaboration

As your SFP campus librarian, I am always interested in working with faculty to support curriculum and student success. In addition, I routinely solicit faculty input in reviewing current collections and making recommendations for additional resources.

Faculty referrals to the library and librarian have proven to be the most effective means of making students aware of library services and resources at the SFP campus - please continue to make announcements to your students in class and encourage them to visit the library; reference the LibGuide; or ask the librarian for help. You are encouraged to add me as a T.A. or teacher on your Canvas courses so that I can best gage students' research needs.

For example, I routinely collaborate and work with faculty on providing:

  • 1 hour research group appointments for students
  • 1 hour consultations with faculty on research methods and information retrieval
  • Librarian-mediated literature searches for faculty

The "Have You Heard? Health Literacy and Communication Are a Vital Sign" seminar will be offered to students during the "Health Assessment" course.
