Dear FSU Faculty:
Welcome back to another busy and exciting school year at Fayetteville State University. We trust that you are in agreement that 2010-2011 will be an unparalleled year of excellence and unprecedented accomplishments for FSU.
As a vital resource of the institution, Chesnutt Library is initiating its liaison program to academic departments in order to better collaborate with faculty to provide enhanced services and quality educational materials for our students. The objective of the liaison program is to provide faculty with a voice in library collection development as it relates to their particular departments and subjects.
To supplement the many academic programs FSU offers, the library provides a wide array of services and resources. Each of these services will serve to enhance the quality of learning for students here at Fayetteville State University. Those services include, but are not limited to:
- An impressive collection of databases that can be accessed on and off campus
- A shared online catalog with UNC-Wilmington and UNC-Pembroke in which their book materials can be sent to FSU for student pick-up
- Interlibrary loan services that offers access to materials that Chesnutt Library does not own. This service includes materials that can be accessed through DocLine.
- Custom bibliographic instruction sessions for your classes
- Media collection with sources in multiple formats and on many disciplines with viewing areas and a production facility
- Statistical information from numerous government agencies available within the Government Documents department
- Archives and Special Collections, which maintains and develops a collection of official records and materials of significant historical value related to Fayetteville State University
- Thousands of academic journal and periodical titles in current and back issues.
We look forward to working you throughout the semester. Again, please note that your library liaison is available to attend departmental meetings, to relay purchase requests to the library’s collection development department, to serve as a first contact for faculty and students in your department, to arrange training in the use of electronic information resources, as well as bibliographic instruction, and to keep you informed about new Library resources and programs.
Library liaisons will be reaching out to you in the coming weeks. For more information, please contact Jan Whitfield, Head of Public Services, firstname.lastname@example.org, 910-672-1750.
