Biology: Subject Guide: Library Services

What Can Your Subject Specialist Do For You?

Information Literacy Instruction
Library InstructionInformation Skills | Request Course Reserves
I will teach library information sessions for many situations, from an introduction to the GSU library to searching specific databases for upper-level assignments. In addition to the topics covered in the Instruction Menu, I can personalize class sessions to cover research for specific assignments, scholarly communication in the sciences, and more. I am also willing to hold workshops or lectures for faculty and graduate students, covering topics such as scholarly communication, open access, and more.

Collection Development
Biology Collection Development Policy
I welcome suggestions for books and other resources you would like the library to purchase; email any suggestions to me or your book chair. I will also purchase books based on your research interests and our Biology collection development policy. Feel free to suggest any additions to our collection development policy and/or notify me on new research interests.

Online Resources
Biology Research Guides
Biology library guides serve as an online resource for undergraduate and graduate students, providing a convenient collection of information useful for research, writing, and career development. I can also create course-specific research guides, tailored to your classes.

Research Help
I am available through email or phone to schedule research consultations. For classes with a library research component, I encourage faculty to include my contact information on the syllabus to give students the best help possible.

Collaboration
I am open to developing other services. Other GSU subject librarians have worked with teaching faculty to develop assignments, held office hours in classroom or departmental space, attended faculty meetings, talked with faculty and graduate students about publication and tenure, and more. If you think I might be of use in some way, ask!
