The faculty is encouraged to make recommendations for additions to the library collection in support of their curriculum. Choice book reviews will be circulated to the departments for suggestions for purchase. Order cards are available for submission of individual requests. Publisher catalog, brochures, etc. may be submitted providing choices are clearly marked. E-mail requests are accepted. Requests should be directed to Pamela Wood or Janelle Barbour.
The faculty is also encouraged to make recommendations regarding subscriptions to academic journals. Additions are subject to the approval of the department chairperson and the director of library services. Titles for consideration should be submitted in September. Subscriptions are usually on an annual basis, beginning January 1.
Electronic resource requests (databases, eBooks, electronic journals) should be made using the form linked here.
When requested materials are available for use, the faculty member requesting the material will receive a notification slip or email. A list of all new materials cataloged is published monthly on the "New Books” page. A link to the "New Books" page is located above the search box on the Moye Library homepage.
Library materials and the instructor’s personal copies of print material may be put on reserve at the reference desk. The loan period is determined by the instructor. Typical loan periods are 2 hours, 1 day, 3 days, or one week. One copy should be submitted. The library staff will determine the need for additional copies, including photocopies. Copyright guidelines must be followed.
Materials from the library collection are available for checkout to faculty for a period of three months. Audiovisual materials, including CDs and DVDs, are included. If materials are needed for a longer period, please contact Kelsey Chandler or Janelle Barbour. Faculty members at the locations other than Mount Olive may check Moye Library's online catalog for materials and request them to be mailed to the location.
A librarian will provide customized information literacy instruction for your classes, highlighting holdings, electronic resources and research techniques related specifically to the course or assignment. For more information and to request a session, please contact Jackie Hill.
Research assistance is available for students, faculty, and staff. One-on-one and group research consultations may cover any topic related to the research process, use of library resources, information literacy skills, and/or scholarly communication. Research consultations are an excellent opportunity to learn more the resources offered by Moye Library. You do not need to have a specific project in mind to receive assistance. Drop-ins are welcome and help is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to schedule an appointment in advance, please email Reference Librarian, Kelsey Chandler at KChandler@umo.edu. Include your name, preferred method of contact, and a brief description of the information you need.
Research assistance is also available virtually. In addition to assistance via email, phone, and library chat we provide face-to-face research consultations using Zoom Videoconferencing.
Research guides are available by request and may cover any subject, course, or topic. These interactive guides are often created in collaboration with faculty and can be directly embedded into a Moodle course. For a list of current guides, see the Research Guides page of the Moye Library website. To request the creation of a guide, email Reference Librarian, Kelsey Chandler, at KChandler@umo.edu.
