Faculty and instructors may:

Course reserves (readings & media)
Faculty and instructors may request items be placed on reserve for a course via our online form, linked below; syllabi cannot be accepted in lieu of the form.
Also, faculty and instructors may request required films be made available via streaming media for their courses, and request library-owned media for screening in the classroom or in Wells Library screening rooms.
Class handouts and activities introduce concepts and processes central to scholarly research and information use. Instructional activities facilitate critical use of research tools and information. Also, Teaching & Learning librarians are available to consult with departments or individual faculty, instructors, and librarians to discuss the integration of research knowledge and informed literacy into courses and assignments.

Course-specific research guides
Course Guides provide instructional materials about the research process and connect students with relevant library resources and services. A librarian will work with you to create a guide that corresponds to your class's learning objectives and assignments. Faculty and instructors may contact Teaching & Learning to request a course guide be created for their class.

IUCAT Folder Transfer Feature
IUCAT Folders lets you save and organize your search results and refer back to them later.
Remember that IUCAT folders can already be shared with any one at any time by changing the visibility through the folder edit feature and then sharing the URL. This allows people to view and cite items in the folder but not add or delete them.
Now, you can transfer ownership of one or all of your folders to another IU Libraries user. Then, new folder owners can modify the folders of library materials while also sharing it with other users.
What can you use the new folder transfer feature for?
- To share a list of course materials with a colleague who is teaching a new class.
- To share a folder of related resources on a specific topic of project with other professional staff or students. This might be a librarian collecting sources on a research project or a student group president that is graduating and sharing a reading list with the new president.
- To share whatever materials you store in folders if you leave IU.
