Doane Library Services for Faculty

Services For You

Research Assistance

The library offers research consultations for you and your students. We provide reference services through e-mail, chat, phone, and Zoom by appointment. 

Library Instruction

Librarians are available to offer library instruction sessions (teaching your students how to use library resources) via various delivery options, including through Zoom and visits to Lincoln, Omaha, and Grand Island locations.

We can also create course-specific library guides and connect students to course specific resources. Here is a guide from a Japanese Cultures course as an example.

Librarians can serve as an embedded librarian in courses using Blackboard where we can answer research questions and upload resources.

For more information and to request instruction, please contact

Locating Course Materials

We are able to assist you in locating freely available and licensed materials for use in your courses. These materials can serve as course readings, textbook replacements, or instructional materials and range from journal articles to ebooks and streaming video. See the Find Library Resources page for more information on locating licensed materials, including streaming video, in the library. Use the Find Open Access Resources page for suggested places to find open education materials. Contact for help!
