Faculty Services

Students in the Collaboration Room

Mission College Library provides academic support services for faculty in all programs. Stop by the Library or make an appointment for a personal orientation to our services. Reviewing course needs with the librarians will ensure that we have all the materials students need to successfully complete your course.

Includes information on borrowing material, instructor reserves, textbook reserves, electronic resources, and Library services.

"Instructor Reserves" are items placed on reserve by faculty for the students in their courses.

The easiest way to access research assistance, subject guides, and useful resources both on- and off-campus.

E-Books
E-books may be accessed through the Library’s Online Catalog or from the Library Research Databases page. They are listed under the subject Electronic Books & Films. For information regarding accessing, downloading, printing, and emailing e-books, refer to the E-Books handout.

Streaming Videos
The Library provides online access to films. These films may be accessed through the Library’s Online Catalog or from the Films on Demand database, which is available from the Library Research Databases page. They are listed under the subject Electronic Books & Films. For instructions on how to access and search for films, and embed films in ANGEL, refer to the Films on Demand handout.

Faculty are encouraged to use articles from the subscription databases as course material. However, instead of copying articles or linking directly to them, we recommend that you provide your students with the instructions on how to find the article. For a template that you can use to provide instructions for your students, refer to the Database Search Instructions handout.
