  • Faculty Orientation - Learn about the library resources and services and how you can partner with the JCC librarians to improve our collections and to provide research instruction to meet your students’ needs.
  • Library Instruction - Schedule a library instruction session. The reference librarians will customize a library instruction session to meet the needs of your students, with an emphasis on library resources in your specific discipline.
    • Please schedule your class(es) at least 2 weeks prior to the date(s) on which you wish to bring your students to the library.
    • When you schedule your class(es), be prepared to provide your assignment and/or information regarding what students will be researching so that we can customize the class to include your specific needs.
    • Please inform your class(es) in advance of the upcoming visit(s) to the library and the assignment connected to that visit. For in-person sessions, have your class(es) meet you in the library's classroom to make maximum use of time.
    • Instructors must be present during all library instruction sessions. Having you present adds to the session by:
      • emphasizing the importance of the instruction;
      • allowing you to contribute in ways that can encourage interaction and questions about the application of library resources, both in general and to your particular assignment; and
      • providing you with information about new resources of which you may not be aware.
  • What is a LibGuide?- View information about LibGuides and how they can be useful to you and your students. Learn how to create one with the help of a video tutorial and sample guides.

  • We are a WNYLRC AcademicShare library. Therefore, AcademicSHARE Member libraries agree to allow on-site access and lend materials to any current college student, staff, and/or faculty member from another WNYLRC member academic library. However, at minimum, a verifiable valid college I.D. is required. The library may choose to treat the college I.D. as confirmation the student/faculty member is in good standing. Other proof of identification or status may be required.
