For Faculty & Staff

The Darrell W. Krueger Library has a wealth of resources for faculty and staff from access to materials for course curricula to library instruction and collection development.

The Krueger Library has two types of course reserves. Print reserves are items WSU instructors have set aside for students in their classes to check out on a short-term basis. These items may be library-owned or instructor-owned. Most print reserve items are in-library use only and have a two-hour checkout period. E-reserves are scanned documents available online.

Faculty may schedule videos for use in their classroom. You can find videos for your course by using the library catalog advanced search function. Select "DVD" or “videorecording” from the Format drop-down menu and search for materials.

The Krueger Library has access to two streaming video collections: Films on Demand and VAST: Academic Video Online. Use the step-by-step guide to find a streaming video in your discipline. 

The Library Liaison program connects each academic department with a librarian. This program ensures faculty and students develop a strong relationship with a librarian. The liaison librarian works with department faculty to learn curricula and research needs, develops the collections for those departments, and collaborates with faculty to teach essential research skills to students. 

A Course Guide is an online resource specifically designed for a single course. Your liaison librarian can customize a list of focused resources, both electronic and in print, which are instrumental in the successful completion of a course project or paper. Please contact your liaison if you would like a Course Guide developed for any of your courses.  

Teaching students about research, how to select research tools, how to evaluate sources, and other essential research skills is core to the librarians’ role at WSU. In collaboration with faculty, the librarians design library instruction or research education sessions based on the needs of the students and the expectations for the course.

 Your departmental liaison librarian will work with you to build and manage book and journal collections in your subject discipline. To make collections recommendations, please contact your library liaison.
