The Library provides resources, research assistance, and teaching support for Stevens faculty.
Faculty can borrow:
- circulating books for an initial lending period of 120 days, and
- up to 15 items at any given time (contact Circulation Services Manager John Cruz if you need to check out more items at one time).
A book can be renewed 10 times unless there is a recall or hold placed on the book. For additional renewals, the book must be presented at the Circulation Desk.
Policies about holds, recalls and fines can be found on the Borrow & Renew page.
All reserve materials can be borrowed for 2 hours and can only be used in the Library.
Note: Online material for a course is not handled by the Library but should be put into Canvas for the specific course.
Selected titles are entered into the Reserve Collection at the request of faculty or Library staff and are shelved behind the Circulation Desk. Faculty seeking to place books on reserve must complete a Reserve Book Form.
Reserve course materials include but are not limited to homework assignments, problem sets, examination preparation guides, and study materials that faculty have placed on reserve in order to provide convenient access for their students.
Faculty wanting to place course material on reserve should complete a Course Material Reserve Form.
Support for Your Class
Liaison librarians offer both general and discipline-specific Library research training sessions for your students in order to familiarize them with Library resources and give them an introduction to basic research techniques and information literacy.
See the Instruction page for more on how librarians can support your class.
Faculty Research Assistance
Librarians are happy to meet with faculty individually to discuss research resources available to you from the Library.
See Research Assistance for more information.
Citation Searching and Impact Factor
Faculty members can use Library databases to keep track of their citations. See the Citation Tracking & Bibliometrics research guide for more help.
Have a Book, Journal, or Database Recommendation?
The Library depends on faculty to help build a collection of books, journals, and databases that support the Stevens curriculum.
- If you have a book suggestion, you may submit a Recommend a Book Purchase form. Our collection development policy has more information on the scope of our collection activity.
- If you have a journal or database suggestion, you may submit a Recommend a Resource form.
If you have any questions about recommendations, please contact Scott Smith, Head of Acquisitions and Collection Development.
