The library offers a range of resources and services to support faculty and to achieve D'Youville's academic mission.
Librarians can help you and your students achieve their research needs with services including library instruction, course reserves, database access, e-resources, and more.
Library instruction classes are regularly scheduled throughout each academic semester. Sessions are designed to help students develop the basic and essential skills needed to conduct college-level research. Each session reviews the library resources and services so that students may independently and confidently locate, evaluate, and use information that supports their academic pursuits.
