About COM Library
We missed you!
The physical library and the online library are open for Fall! The online library has never been closed and the physical library reopens on August 24th. You can see hours for the physical library, online library and library lab here. There will be some changes to allow for social distancing and decrease contact. You can go to About COM Library to see the latest information.
Loads of Resources for Your Students!!!
We have loads of resources that your students can access online! They can access them all from home, 24/7. They will just need to login with their COM ID and last name.
We have great How To guides for all our databases. If your students need help, they can just start a live chat with us during library hours, text us, email us or submit an online form. There are lots of ways to get help!
Scans of Reserves
We are still filling requests of scanned chapters of reserve items for your students. Just so you know, students are making requests and are depending on these scanned chapters. What we can send them is limited to what we already have scanned. I’ve published a list for those items on the Textbook Checkout page. Click/tap on the list to see full size. Please let me know what you’d like scanned for Summer II so we can get those ready for your students.
Virtual Librarians for your Courses
Let me know if you’d like a virtual librarian for your Summer II courses. Your virtual librarian will send out several announcements during the semester with links to top resources for their assignments as well as links to get help with the research directly from library staff via live chat, texts, emails and online forms. Email me you’d like a virtual librarian for your class.
Library Instruction via Teams or Zoom
We can still deliver synchronous library instruction for your courses online, or even to your departments if you want to get more familiar with any of our online resources. Teams sessions are best if you have your class set up in teams already and don’t want a time limit on the sessions. Zoom sessions will work for course that have not been set up in Teams and would be limited to 40 minutes. We are also working on videos for asynchronous library instruction. Email me you’d like library instruction for your class.
We've created a series of guides just for faculty where you can learn more:
