Off-Campus Library Services - Information for Faculty

The James White Library is committed to supporting the Distributed Education program of Andrews University in accordance with the Guidelines published by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).  We acknowledge that access to library resources and services is an essential component of a student's college education and appreciate the difficulties that students in remote locations often face.

James White Library has embraced technology as a means of bridging the gap between home and campus and is pleased to be able to offer a variety of services to Andrews University students enrolled in off-campus courses and their teaching faculty.

worldHOW WE CAN SERVE YOUR STUDENTS MORE EFFECTIVELY

In order to provide these services effectively, we need some assistance from you and ask that you provide us with the following information:

                    Regularly updated class schedules for off-campus courses.

                    Provide the Reference and Consultation Services staff at x3283 with copies of
                    assignments or reading lists before you leave to teach in a remote location - then
                    they will know why they are getting questions on a particular topic.

We would also ask that you:

                   Register your students with Graduate Admissions before the start of your class.
                    The license agreements for our online databases specify that we can only supply
                    access to currently enrolled students.  If students are not registered and on Banner,
                    then we are unable to provide them with the services they are entitled to.

                   Add a link from your Distance Education web site or your WebCT course to both
                    the James White Library and the Off-Campus Library Services web pages to
                    enable easier access for your students.

                   Direct your students to the Off-Campus Library Services web page when you
                    are teaching your course.
