Resources for Faculty: Welcome & FAQs

A Teaching Library

Welcome to the Gustavus Library! At our core, we are a teaching library. We partner with classroom faculty across all disciplines to help students develop sophisticated research skills grounded in information literacy. Although our collection is designed to support an undergraduate curriculum, we are also here to support your research as best we can. We also rely on you to help us build a dynamic collection for both you and your students.

This guide introduces many ways we can work with you, as well as providing answers to many frequently asked questions (below). We also have separate guides about teaching the research process in various levels and requirements: Teaching Research to First-Year StudentsTeaching Research to Upper-Level Students, and Teaching WRITL Courses.

Above all, we want to build relationships with you. You can work with your liaison librarian or contact any one of us. We look forward to working with you!
