Library Resources For Faculty
The instruction program is designed to acquaint patrons with the physical layout of the library and to introduce them to the basic facilities, services, and resources available to meet their information needs. The library faculty are also available to present lectures and demonstrations on the use of subject specific resources to undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and other patrons. Go to Library Instruction Department.
The course reserves system features course notes, syllabi, and assigned readings selected by the instructor. Materials placed on reserve must comply with both federal copyright law and university copyright policy.
Turnitin is a plagiarism detection device meant to aid students and faculty in their joint effort to reduce plagiarism and promote originality in student papers. Go to Turnitin instructions.
Winthrop faculty members may check out general collection materials for a period of one academic year. Faculty may check out reference materials only with the permission of the reference librarian. In order to protect accounts, all faculty must present a valid photo ID (preferably a Winthrop ID) to check out materials.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a cooperative service between libraries that allows eligible Winthrop faculty, staff and students to obtain materials not owned by Dacus Library. This service includes borrowing from other libraries books, photocopies of periodical articles, microfilm copies of dissertations, and other needed items. Go to Interlibrary Loan Department.
Faculty members who have graduate/research assistants ordering for them:
Please be aware that when a student is ordering in your name, you are responsible for any overdue, lost or damaged items.
The library has 20 closed carrels available for faculty and graduate students who need the space for research projects. The carrels are assigned for an academic year. Application forms are available at the reference desk.
The Library accepts requests from patrons and acquires materials within the guidelines of the Library's stated "Collection Development Policy" and within the confines of the library budget. Each department is allocated an amount for book and audio-visual purchases. Within each department, a faculty member is designated to coordinate requests and act as a liaison with the library. Faculty members should submit requests to this liaison, who will forward them to the Monographs and A-V Acquisitions Department. For more information, please view the Collection Management Handbook
