Reference librarians are available to provide library instruction sessions, either in the RIC classrooms or your own. Instruction is provided on an introductory level to beginning students and on an advanced level to upperclassmen and graduate students. Our goal is to help students become more effective and efficient at finding information for their research papers.
The librarians demonstrate how to search the Wildcat, the library catalog, general databases, specialized databases, Interlibrary Loan, course reserves, and more. We welcome the opportunity to work with you so that library instruction is relevant to your class assignments.
To set up a library instruction session, please fill out a Library Instruction Request form.
The Daemen College Library adheres to the Daemen College Collection Development Policy whenever considering new and replacement materials. The Collection Development policy is also consulted during deselection practices.
Either of four methods may be used to request new book and AV materials:
You can either:
Fill out a “Serials Request Form” (as seen below). Subscription to a serial title represents a continuing financial encumbrance upon Library funds for an indefinite period of time. Therefore, following the Collection Development Policy guidelines, the evaluation of prospective serial titles is undertaken with great care.
Requests for library materials must conform to the Collection Development Policy.
Budget Reports are sent monthly to members of the Library Committee detailing funds available for the purchase of library materials.
If you're interested in having a course-specific research guide created for your classes, please contact Andrea Sullivan. For examples of our work, follow the link below.
