Accessing Library Materials

 Reference librarians and our Staff offer help in using library resources and locating materials. If you have any questions use our chat or email (library@glendale.edu).

Resources:

Borrowing privilegesFaculty may obtain a library card by filling out an application and presenting a valid ID at the Circulation Desk. General circulating items are due at the end of each semester or intersession, but are subject to recall by other users. Faculty may check out reference books overnight and should make such requests at the reference desk.

Faculty Holds

Faculty may call the circulation desk to have a specific item held for them. If the item is available, the faculty member will be notified and it may picked up at the circulation desk.

Collection Development - Purchase Requests

Library collection and purchasing suggestions: We encourage faculty members to make recommendations for library acquisitions. These requests can be made at the reference desk, by contacting your liaison librarian, or by filling out a Library Materials Purchase Request form online.

New tenure-track faculty may request a one time grant from the New Faculty Fund.

This “grant” is intended to help remedy any collection inadequacies related to your field or to courses you will be teaching. 

Contact your liaison.

Reserves

As of Spring 2020, faculty can request online reserves via the online form

Note:

  • Please fill out this form at least ten business days in advance of when your students need the access.
  • If you have multiple requests, submit separate forms for each individual title.
  • If you requested electronic reserves in a previous semester, please fill out this form again so that the Library can securely deliver material within your Canvas course.
  • The Library will evaluate each request and will prioritize essential materials needed for course work. Note that each request is evaluated on a case-by-case basis and providing online access may not be possible for certain titles.
  • If the Library can purchase an ebook to fulfill the e-reserves request, we will do so.
  • Any materials that are scanned will be password protected and securely delivered through Leganto, an electronic reserves tool that is embedded in Canvas.
  • The Library will contact you individually via email about your requests.

For on campus use (not available as of Fall 2020): 

Faculty may place library or personal materials on reserve for students. To ensure that students have maximum access, we recommend that reserves check out for 2 hours and cannot leave the library. However, overnight and 3-day check out periods are also available.

Please submit your request at least 1 week prior to the date needed in person or by contacting the Circulation Desk at ext. 5586.
