Faculty Services

Our library provides resources for supporting your teaching endeavors at Union Institute & University and incorporating useful links to library resources into your online courses. We also welcome your participation in ongoing efforts to build and expand our online research collections of electronic books, periodical subscriptions, research databases, and other web-based resources.

If you would like to learn more about incorporating online library resources (e-books, journal articles, doctoral dissertations, etc.) into your online courses, required reading lists, and course syllabi, please contact Susan Whitehead.

If you would like to participate in library collection development, please contact Matt Pappathan.

  • Citations & Plagiarism. The library help center includes tutorials, APA & MLA citation examples, and a citation formatting tool.
  • Research Assignments.  Librarians are happy to assist with developing or reviewing research assignments.  We also have pre-made research assignments and tutorials.
  • Professional Development. Have journals delivered directly to your email with journal alerts.

Articles, Books, Videos, and Course Resources

The UI&U Library contains a wide-variety of resources available for your online courses, including articles, e-books, and streaming videos. Including library resources in a course encourages students to use the library, prevents copyright concerns, and ensures students can obtain a copy of the readings assigned.  Librarians recommend sharing resources using a non-hyperlinked Available in the UI&U Library message.  Learn more.

Presentations

Our librarians would be happy to create a presentation for your course, academic residency, department meeting, or conference. Most presentations are hosted online using Zoom online conferencing. We can also provide live presentations at our Cincinnati Academic Center.

Send an email to library@myunion.edu to request a presentation.  Please include as much of the following information as you can: date/time (tentative is fine), number of participants, participant’s research experience, accommodations that are needed, and any content you would like covered.
