Library in Spring 0027(2)We are pleased to welcome returning and new 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.

Instruction
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.

Learn more about library instruction and course reserves services visit our faculty website.

Research
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. The librarians are always happy to help you find the information you need.

We have a number of resources that can help both you and your students with their research including: Subject Gateways, Course Gateways, the Research Database list, the Journal List, and our own Digital Collections in Special Collections and Archives.

If we don’t have what you are looking for, chances are that Interlibrary Loan (ILL) can get it for you.

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.

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. 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.

Cultural Enrichment
The library also offers a number academic events and workshops  throughout the year. If you have ideas for events you would like to see the library offer, please do not hesitate to contact Librarian Joyce Garczynski at jgarczynski@towson.edu and share your ideas.

Keep Up with Cook Library
We publish an e-newsletter, Cook Notes, describing what is new at the library. Look in your email inbox for this publication in October, February, and May.

Don’t forget: You can always keep up with new resources and events by liking us on Facebook and following us on Instagram as well as Twitter.
