Faculty Services Guide

The LBCC Library building is closed, but you can still access our services and collections. Learn more on our COVID-19/ Remote Services page.
Information Literacy Instruction and Support
As always, the librarians are available to work with your classes on information literacy and research skills.  Please refer to our remote library instruction guide for the most current options.
Course Reserves
Starting in Winter 2020, the Library will begin checking out textbooks from our reserve collection for a whole term at a time.  Students and employees will be able to check out items from the reserves collection using the same process as most other library materials, using the curbside/central pickup location.  Contact Cheryl Carlson (carlsoc@linnbenton.edu) if you have copies of your course materials that you'd like students to checkout.
  • If a student can't afford required course materials. Please refer them to the Roadrunner Resource Center (resources@linnbenton.edu). There are several emergency funds that can be used to purchase textbooks, including a recent, generous donation from the SLC, and the Faculty Association fund.
  • If you are a faculty member and your students don't have access to a resource.
    • Consider the Fair Use Recommendations in the Library's Copyright Guide, such as limiting access to your students and sharing the minimum amount necessary.
    •  If you don't have a scanner at home, Microsoft Lens and Adobe Scan are two free scanning apps for your smartphone.
If you encounter a situation where none of these options are feasible, or if you have questions about fair use and copyright, please reach out to Michaela Willi Hooper (willihm@linnbenton.edu) or another librarian for further support.
