The attached document addresses some of the frequently asked questions we received from faculty.
Faculty may add materials they have contributed to, or written, to the Library collection.
Faculty submissions will be cataloged and held on Reserve. This means the material is held in a separate location in the library, away from the general circulating collection, and may be used only in the library with a valid student ID, for up to two hours.
Any faculty member interested in submitting work should complete the attached submission form and return or email to a Library staff member.
The Briarcliffe College Library offers comprehensive Information Literacy instruction sessions. These workshops offer students valuable hands-on training on how to access, use and evaluate information resources. They are a valuable supplement to courses such as Collegiate Learning to specific courses in all subject areas.
An Information Literacy Workshop request form is available at all libraries and online. This form must be completed and submitted in person or via email to the Library staff. The courtesy of at least one week's notice is requested. A Library staff member will respond and confirm the appointment.
The Briarcliffe College Library would like to make available our patron registration form online for the benefit of the faculty. Faculty who teach strictly online are encouraged to register and take advantage of the resources the library has available.
The Service Learning Toolkit is an online resource designed to provide you with an overview of what Service Learning is and give you some ideas of Service Learning projects that can be incorporated into the classroom.
On the tab called "Examples by Discipline" you will find examples of Service Learning activities that have been used in other institutions. You can also submit your own ideas for Service Learning activities using the "Submit a Service Learning idea" link.
Please contact the Library with any questions about using this toolkit.
Any movies shown need to have a public performance license. For more information about how to determine if the movie you would like to show is approved for showing, please click here or go to the faculty portal, click on Links and scroll down to the section on Swank.

The form for requesting permission to show a film or clip can be found here. (Copyright Clearance Form)

The Briarcliffe College Library accepts suggestions for purchases from the college community. If you have a suggestion, please use the Request form to describe the book, magazine, audiovisual material or electronic database you think the library should add to the collection.
Purchases should support the Library's Mission Statement ( found HERE ) and are subject to the availability of funds for the acquisition. Additionally, any film requests must come with permission to show the film in a public setting.
Please see the textbook policy linked here.
What is weeding? Weeding is an essential part of maintaining a relevant, balanced and up-to-date collection. The library collection is regularly reviewed to determine which items should be removed from the shelves. Items in the collection are assessed for their condition, currency, value to the collection, duplication and historical references.
Library staff members are assigned sections of the collection to review and they recommend titles for removal. However, faculty input is vital to this process. The suggestions and recommendations of the faculty are an important part of maintaining the collection. For additional information on the weeding process, please review Briarcliffe College Library's weeding policy. (Weeding Policy)
