Welcome to the UI&U Library Orientation for Faculty
This professional development course provides an introduction to the scholarly resources and services available at the Union Institute & University Library. We’ll take a tour of the library’s research databases and also demonstrate the ways you can integrate library resources into your online course(s).
This is a self-paced course, which you can complete in your own time (and focus on the areas most relevant to your work). Although there will be no live presentations, I can be reached for assistance and questions by email at email@example.com or by phone, toll-free, at 1-800-871-8165, extension 1243.
