Professors: Schedule Library Instruction

Faculty members: Librarians are available to support your students’ information literacy learning needs.

  • Please contact Grace Kaletski-Maisel if you’d like to schedule a library instruction session that will be tailored to your class and assignment. Please schedule at least one week in advance.

  • If a full instruction session is not the right fit for your class, fill out a Request Information Literacy Support form to learn more about the variety of other ways we can support student learning in your courses.

  • Additionally, please consider including information about the duPont-Ball Library’s Ask a Librarian reference service in your syllabi. Here’s a sample blurb that you are welcome to copy and paste:

    Research librarians at the duPont-Ball Library are available to help you with all of your information needs, such as choosing a topic, using databases, finding sources, evaluating sources, and formatting citations. A librarian is “on-call” and ready to help during the following hours: Monday-Thursday 10 AM-10 PM, Friday 10 AM-5 PM, Saturday 11 AM-6PM, and Sunday 2 PM-10 PM. Call or text 386-747-9028 or email libref@stetson.edu for immediate help. Or, set up a research consultation appointment at http://stetson.libwizard.com/consult

Off-Campus Access to Library Resources Update

As you may be aware, accessing library resources from off-campus has been challenging this semester. In some cases, the library resources were not compatible with new security settings installed on Stetson’s network and users encountered security errors.

The problem was addressed by implementing new software that authenticates users from off-campus. We have tested off-campus access during the past two weeks and we are no longer experiencing security errors.

In order to fully realize the benefits of this solution, you will need to update any bookmarks or saved links you have on your computers. If your saved link contains “proxy.stetson.edu,” you will need to update to a new link by going through the library’s home page.

We understand the frustration and inconvenience you may have experienced this semester when trying to access the library’s resources. Please let us know if you continue to experience problems by emailing libref@stetson.edu or calling the on-call librarian at 386-747-9028.

Kopernio

Kopernio is a free browser plugin that works to get you the best PDF copy of open access articles you want to find, on or off campus. Set up a free account with Kopernio to connect to Stetson’s content (instructions here). The plug in stores your Stetson credentials on your personal computer and employs them when you’re doing a literature search. Works with Google Scholar and publisher websites to find freely available and library subscription content. Learn more about it. Questions? Contact Jennifer Corbin, jcorbin1@stetson.edu.
