Library Services and Support for Faculty

This guide is to assist you in providing library services and support for your courses.

Asynchronous Support

Chaffey Librarians are here to provide the following instructional library activities to support your students.

Asynchronous Support Services

Embed a Chaffey Librarian in your Canvas course

  • Librarian research instruction is available to integrate in your Canvas course. We offer online, librarian-led research discussions, question moderation, and interactive tutorials. By adding the Chaffey Librarian (a team of librarians) into your Canvas course, your students will get personalized assistance with their research projects and discuss topics such as "Picking a Topic," "Finding and Evaluating Scholarly Articles," "Using Library Databases," and more. If you prefer, you can add your ACC Library Liaison instead to your Canvas course (you can also review the video on how to add your ACC librarian).

Request a customized research topic guide

  • Your ACC Library Liaison Librarian can create a customized research guide for your research assignments or projects. These types of guides can assist your students in understanding their specific research assignments. Below are some examples of customized research guides created by Librarians Carol Hutte and Terezita Overduin.

Assign a library research tutorial 

  • Assigning low stakes or extra credit when your students complete a research tutorial is a great way to engage your students in learning about the research process. The research tutorials are interactive, and students get an email notification for each tutorial they complete.

Assign a Credible Sources Check Activity

  • This activity allows your students to find citations from a variety of sources on their chosen topic and submit via worksheet to librarians to review and provide feedback. You can also have a customized Credible Sources Check activity that fits your research assignment. See one customized activity below:
