Library - Faculty Support
Please stop by and visit your library and let us know what we can do for you and your students. The following is a list of some of our services.
Library Health Workshops and Tutorials
The library offers a one-hour workshop for Health classes. Please remind your students to pre-register for the workshop at the reference desk. The workshop schedule and links to the online tutorial is posted at http://www.lamission.edu/library/workshops.aspx
Library Tours and Assignment Specific Library Instruction
You may schedule a tour or an assignment specific orientation by contacting the reference desk at 818-364-7600 ext.7105. We require 7 days notice along with a copy of the assignment; instructors are encouraged to attend.
It is very helpful to students to have class materials, especially textbooks, available in the Library, to read or to make copies of. If you have a spare copy, please fill out this form and bring it and the material to the Library so we can make the material available to students. Material can remain yours, or can be donated to the Library.
A reference librarian is available to help find information and provide instruction in the use of the library either to groups or individuals. You may want to check with the reference librarian to see if the library has resources to support your assignment. 818-364-7600 ext. 7105
We have prepared several study aids which are available to students free. They cover such topics as how to make an outline, citing sources using MLA and APA format, avoiding plagiarism, career information, communicating with legislators, etc.
Find books, articles in periodicals and newspapers and reference information online. http://www.lamission.edu/library/resources.aspx
If a book you need is not available at this library, you can request it from a library within the LACC District. Make your request with the reference librarian, and expect the item(s) to arrive no sooner than 1 week from day of request.
Recommend books and other materials for purchase
We have very little money for books, periodicals and media this year but we have some and we welcome your suggestions for purchase.
Several study rooms are available for student use. Groups have priority over individuals, and rooms are available on a first-come, first served basis—no reservations.
Video Conference Room
The Video Conference Room (capacity 14) can be scheduled for a video conference or for discipline and campus meetings by placing a request for the room at least 5 days in advance through the Event Management System. You are required to have an account to use the system. Information is available on the website for creating an account and using the Event Management system. http://calendar.lamission.edu/
NOTE: Room use is limited to library hours. Video conferences have priority over other uses.
Computers located in the Library (top floor) provide access to word processing, the internet, newspaper and magazine databases and other online resources.
