EVC Library Support for Online and Distance Education: DE Faculty



To place materials on Reserve for your class,​ bring the materials to the Library Circulation desk and complete a Course Reserve Form for each course. You can also print and fill out this Reserve materials form and bring it to the library with materials you wish to have placed on Reserve. You may choose a 2 hour, 1 day, or 3 day loan period for each item.

Instructional Sessions

To arrange an online library orientation for your class, please contact Lorena Mata, EVC Library Coordinator. The online orientation will be a 15-30 minute video discussing information literacy concepts and library resources related to your research assignment or project. This video will be accessible from YouTube, which you will be able to embed into your Canvas page. View a sample here. Please make arrangements at least two weeks in advance to allow us time to prepare.
