This page is to make faculty aware of the online and in-person services available to faculty to facilitate in-person, online, and hybrid learning.
The librarians are available to collaborate with you for online and in-person library instruction. Information sessions are tailored to fit your assignments and the needs of your students. A library instruction session can be tailored to fit the needs of your students by:
We will work with you to provide live in-person or synchronous sessions through Zoom with short Canvas modules, or recorded sessions with short Canvas modules for you to assign to your students. We can even offer a combination of both live and recorded sessions with Canvas modules and other library resources. We're flexible and open to your ideas and working with you to best meet the needs of your students. As always, you must be present for live sessions. Please sign up at least one week in advance and a librarian will be in contact with you.
The librarians have recently created a variety of modules, made available through the CCC_Library Canvas Page. The updated modules provide students the opportunity to learn the skills to begin research, understand types of sources, evaluate web sources, search academic databases, and avoid plagiarism. Each of the modules are badged and include instructions on how students can collect and submit the badge in a Canvas assignment. Please feel free to include these modules as an assignment or extra credit in your course. To give your students access, please add the CCC_Library tab in the Navigation settings of your course.
Students truly benefit from our books and materials in our reserve collection. Sometimes students are unable afford to purchase all of their textbooks. Other students just want to do homework for class, but they did not bring their textbook with them.
Faculty and Student Equity funds allow us to have a collection of textbooks and class materials available for the variety of classes offered. Items are available for 2 hours, in-library use.
Please contact the library to see if books for your course are already available on reserve, or please consider donating a copy to the library for your students to use.
We offer many research guides through the library website on various topics. Research guides compile a variety of resources and information on a topic and can help students to focus their research by showing them what resources would be most helpful on the topic they are researching.
We've created many guides in conjunction with faculty members and we would be happy to work with you! Please contact the library for questions or to begin collaborating with us on a new research guide.
Please take a look at a couple of examples of guides below.
We offer online & in-person options for you and your students to connect with a librarian one-on-one!
Faculty are welcome to check out materials from the library and order books for checkout from other SCCCD campuses. Borrowing terms are the same for faculty as students; however, faculty loans are automatically renewed every 6 weeks for up to 365 days if not returned before the due date. Clovis Community College is a fine-free library, meaning we do not charge late fees for overdue items for all faculty, staff, and student borrowers.
