Welcome (Back) Faculty!
We are pleased to welcome new and returning faculty to Cook Library. We hope you had a wonderful summer. There are a number of ways that the library can be of help as you prepare for your classes and work on your own research.
As the fall semester begins, we want you to know that the staff and librarians at Cook are available to help you get your course reserves set up and teach information literacy sessions to your students on topics like avoiding plagiarism and how to find, use, and evaluate information sources.
To learn more about these services visit our website at http://cooklibrary.towson.edu/facultyServices.cfm
The library also offers a number academic events and programs throughout the year. You can see our list for the fall at http://cooklibrary.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/library-fall-events/. If you have ideas for events you would like to see the library offer, please do not hesitate to contact Librarian Joyce Garczynski at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your ideas.
We can also help you locate the resources you need for your own research. Just contact the library liaison for your department with your questions (a list of liaisons is located here: http://cooklibrary.towson.edu/liaisons.cfm). The librarians are always happy to help you find the information you need.
If you find a library resource and you can’t make it over to Cook to pick it up, we can deliver it to you through our Cook Delivers program. See http://cooklibrary.towson.edu/deliveryService/CookDelivers.cfm for more information.
In addition, the library is proud to showcase all the great research you do. The library has a faculty publications display that is changed out every few months, so if you have a publication you would like to be added to the display, please contact your library liaison (a list of liaisons is located here: http://cooklibrary.towson.edu/liaisons.cfm). If you publish a book, we ask that you donate two copies to the library, one to be circulated and one to be preserved in the Archives.
Don’t forget: You can always keep up with new resources and events by liking us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/cooklibraryoftu) and following us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/CookLibraryOfTU).
