How to Schedule a Room/Space

The Appian Way Conference Room (seats 16), the Media Viewing Room (seats 12 with laptop bar), and group study rooms. Contact the Circulation desk at 603-358-2711 or email the Circulation Services Supervisor, Micki Harrington firstname.lastname@example.org with the dates, time, and event/need for the space.
Information Literacy Resources
The Faculty DIY Information Literacy Modules & Resources have been created to help faculty develop students’ research skills and information literacy. Faculty are encouraged to adapt materials as needed to suit the needs of their courses. Discipline specific materials can be created to help develop students’ information literacy throughout their academic major.
Library faculty collaborate on assignments, develop materials, teach research sessions, co-teach, and teach courses to develop students’ information literacy. Contact the department librarian or the Information Literacy Librarian, Elizabeth Dolinger (email@example.com) to discuss options and needs.
While Mason Library contains and provides access to a wide array of resources to support faculty scholarship, sometimes we need to borrow materials from another library. Fill out the Interlibrary Loan request form and we will do our best to get you what you need. For information on how to make a request either check the FAQ: How do I make an Interlibrary Loan request or contact the Interlibrary Loan office by phone (603-358-2715) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each librarian has been designated a liaison with departments on campus. Look at the Librarian Liaisons list to determine which librarian works with faculty in your department.
Suggest a Book (or Other Media) for Purchase
Overall responsibility for the selection, development, and maintenance of the collection rests with the library faculty, who are familiar with appropriate selection tools and the specific informational needs of library users.
Requests for additional purchases should be directed to the Librarian liaison in your area. Requests are evaluated according to the Library's Collection Development Policy. For any questions regarding Library Collection policies, contact the Collection Development Librarian, Jen Ditkoff.
