Services for Faculty
The library offers special services for faculty. Request a librarian to speak to your class about our resources, or partner with librarians on an upcoming assignment (we can make videos or other tailored tutorials). Embed a librarian into your Canvas course page, or even talk with a librarian about your research.
The librarians regularly offer workshops to students, faculty, and staff at Lenoir-Rhyne. Find an archive of previous workshops on topics like APA citation, as well as information on when our next workshops will be held.
