We encourage Lynn University faculty to select materials for inclusion in the library guided by the Collection Development Policy.
Librarians can work with you to locate and acquire books, journals, videos and other materials that meet the research and teaching needs of the faculty.
The library uses ALA's Choice reviews service to alert faculty to new publications. Reviews of books, periodicals and electronic resources are sent to the faculty each month. Choice is available online; you may e-mail selections to Sally Seaman.
All faculty are encouraged to participate in the development of the library's resources by using Choice reviews.
Staff contacts for collection development:
Books and DVDs:
Periodicals: Leecy Barnett 561-237-7059
- Music Scores, Music CDs or Music DVDs: Tsukasa Cherkaoui 561-237-7214
The library’s infomation desk includes books, DVDs and other materials on reserve for students to use on short-term loans.
Sally Seaman maintains the reserve service, which may may include any material faculty wish to place at the main desk for restricted access.
The loan period for these materials is normally three hours. Faculty may request other periods if necessary.
The library offers two ways for faculty to expedite Course Reserves:
- Faculty processing is the quickest way to get materials on Course Reserve. Faculty members may bring personal copies or books they pull from the library stacks to the Circulation Desk .
- Library processing gives faculty the option of submitting book and journal article lists to library staff.
Contact Sally (561-237-7073) or visit the information desk to arrange for Course Reserve processing.
At the Information Desk faculty may:
- Check out materials for research and instruction
- Place materials on reserve for their courses
Books are generally loaned to faculty for the semester. Extended loan periods and other exceptions may be arranged upon request.
Call Veselin Bozhilov (561-237-7072) for more information.
If you need books or journals that are not available at Lynn, you may want to use other library resources in the region.
