Library Instruction
Instructors can schedule one hour Library orientation sessions for their classes on topics covering our catalog, databases (with full text journals), online search strategies and more; coverage of specific topics can be arranged. Call the Library at 303.797.5726 two weeks in advance to set up a Library instruction class or fill out our Request a Research/Information Literacy Class form online and submit it electronically.

Reserve Collection
Usually designated by faculty, the Reserve Collection contains course specific materials located at the circulation desk. These materials are for use by students in the Library only. While some overnight checkout formats are available, short-term checkout from thirty minutes to two hours is the norm. For your convenience, you can fill out and print the Reserve Request Form ahead of time. Just bring that form and the reserve items to the circulation desk. Please allow Library staff 24 hours to process the material.

Cordless Presenters
Logitech cordless presenters are available for faculty to check out for use with PowerPoint presentations.

Desire2Learn (D2L)
Instructors can integrate Library resources into D2L using search widgets for databases and ebooks and video tutorials. Our guide shows how to include these items, or we would be happy to show you how to add widgets and tutorials in person or over the phone!

Scanners
We have book-edge and high speed scanners that are free for faculty and students. Scan an article or a chapter of a book and email it to your ACC email or save it to a flash drive! All materials scanned and posted on D2L must comply with copyright laws.

Library Tour for Individual Faculty
Walk through your subject area with a librarian. A demonstration of our databases is also available.

Library Faculty Liaison Program
This program assigns one ACC librarian to each department on campus to serve as a contact person for Library services and information. This librarian is responsible for purchasing materials in your area. We welcome and encourage recommendations from faculty for material that will enhance your curriculum. Please call 303.797.5090 to learn the contact person for your department.

Interlibrary Loan
If you need a book or periodical article that the Library does not own, we can get it for you from another library via our interlibrary loan service (ILL). Simply fill out and submit our ILL form. This service is available to all ACC faculty, students and staff.

Librarians at Your Service
Please don't hesitate to contact our librarians with your suggestions, questions,or concerns. We're here to help.
