How are we doing?
- We are routinely handing out brief assessment surveys for students and faculty to fill-out following each Bibliographic Session.
- From time to time the library posts "how are we doing" surveys on its home page to obtain input on a regular basis from the Georgia Southern community. Click here for the current survey. Focus groups formed for this purpose will be consulted as well.
Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery - Any library material needed as a loan or photocopy can be requested via an ILLiad account. If we own the item, we will supply it from our library. If we don't own the item, we will request it from another library. Articles will be delivered electronically via your ILLiad account. Books and other borrowed items are mailed to faculty offices unless the item is "library use only" such as newspaper microfilm. For much more information about these services, see the ILLiad FAQ.
New Titles List
At the bottom of the first screen of the online catalog is a New Titles option. You may search by LC Call numbers in your field/s and stipulate a time period - up to the last 5 weeks - to find out about the newest purchases in your discipline. Upon locating new titles of interest, you will find them ready and waiting for check out from the circulating collection. Of course new Reference titles must remain in the library for viewing.
Program Review Process
The library can help you through the Program Review Process by generating some of the statistical reports required of your department. For example, the library Systems Department headed by David Lowder (email@example.com) has the capability to run various programs on the number of titles in a given LC range relevant to your discipline/s.
