Faculty Resources

Drop-in Library Orientations
  • Are you a faculty member looking to learn more about the West Hills College Lemoore library?
  • Faculty members may schedule a library orientation during which a librarian meets with you and your class to discuss library materials and services available at West Hills.
  • Orientations include instruction and demonstration of print as well as Internet resources.
  • Email ask@westhillscollege.libanswers.com to schedule an orientation date and time on the Lemoore campus.
Guidelines for Placing Materials on Library Reserve
  • If you would like all or most of the students in your class to read the same materials, it's a good idea to place the materials on reserve for the semester during which your class is taught.
  • Reserve items are placed in a closed stack area and are given two hour checkout periods so that everyone in your class gets a chance to use them.
  • Bring print and non-print items for reserve to the Circulation Desk during open library hours.
  • Non-print items, such as DVDs or computer applications, may also be placed on reserve.
Recommendations for Purchase
  • Faculty members are encouraged to recommend book or non-print titles for the general collection.
  • Usually, materials that reflect the college curriculum are given priority.
  • Contact ask@westhillscollege.libanswers.com to request materials.
