Services for Faculty

Below are some of the ways the library can help with courses.

  • Check out our Libguide on Open Resources here.
  • Provide your students with online journal articles to read for assignments using our A-Z Database page
  • Ask a librarian to attend a Blackboard Collaborate session to provide reference instruction.  

Online Resources

  • Databases and eBooks- Our online journals, databases, and eBooks can be found on our A-Z Database page.
  • Individual Database Tutorials- Some of our database publishers have online tutorials to show you how to navigate them. 
  • How to Navigate Blackboard for Students- A YouTube video showing students how to navigate Blackboard.
  • NGU Student Tutoring- The Center for Student Success is launching a virtual tutoring service for Tigerville students. Students will be able to visit their Schedulicity page to check tutor availability and book an appointment. All tutoring sessions will take place via the Microsoft Teams application and students will be sent a setup guide along with helpful information about this new resource. At launch, they will have tutors available for the following courses: Biology, Anatomy, Math, Business, English/Writing, SPTM, French, and ASL. They are working quickly to add tutors for additional courses. In addition to various major courses, this service will provide tutoring for general student success topics like time management and Blackboard/Student Portal navigation.
