These are a few of many services that we can provide to you:

    • Canvas Integration

      These are some options:

      • Live Zoom class sessions on topics like Choosing a Research Topic, Using Library Databases, Evaluating Resources, Citing Your Sources, and more.
      • Prerecorded videos on topics of your choice.
      • Librarian office hours for your class.
      • Research Guides that bring together the best library resources for your class and subject lists of databases. These can be chosen from External Tools in Canvas. See our short video: How to use the External Tool to add Library Resources to Your Canvas Course.
      • You can add a Librarian (a role) to one of our Librarians to be present in your class.

    • Classroom Librarian Visit or Information Literacy Instruction

      We offer sessions on library-based research including an overview of the most important library resources in your discipline, paper writing, proper citation of sources, and more. Request a Classroom Librarian Visit or Information Literacy Instruction through our Classroom Librarian Visit or Information Literacy Instruction Form.

    • Research Guides

      We can make research guides for your class or subject area to gather the most relevant library resources on an easy to access web page. To see some examples, see our current Research Guides. Request a research guide with the Research Guide Request Form.

    • Items on Reserve at the Library

      We can hold items on reserve to allow your students to use them in the library. This could be an extra textbook that you have, supplemental reading, or audiovisual material. Please Ask Us! if you have an item you’d like to place on reserve at the library.

    • AV Equipment

      The libraries located at the Espina and East Mesa campuses have AV equipment available for checkout. This service is available for all DACC faculty and staff. A variety of items are available for classroom and personal use. Reservation requests for equipment can be made via the AV Equipment Request Form.

      Please provide at least two days’ notice for all equipment reservations and at least two weeks’ notice for event reservations. If you are located at a non-Las Cruces campus, please leave enough time for you to come to Las Cruces to pick up items or in limited instances, to have equipment delivered.

      If you do not see a piece of equipment that you need, please let us know so we can see if it can be added to the libraries’ inventories.

    • Purchase Request

      If you know of a resource that would be useful to you or our students that the library doesn’t have, please use the Request Library Item Form to ask the library to purchase it.
