Faculty Support

Library staff invites all Tarleton State University faculty (on and off campus) to take advantage of our resources and services.

Services: We provide numerous in-person and online services. Our course-integrated library instruction sessions can be tailored to your specifications. Librarian liaisons keep you up-to-date on library resources and services and can assist with your research or curriculum needs.

Resources: We offer diverse collections to enhance your teaching and research. Dick Smith Library materials can be checked out with your Texan Card, as well as delivered to other Tarleton instruction sites. Our online collections and databases are always accessible with your Tarleton NTNET login.

It is the responsibility of all members of the Tarleton State University community to make a good faith determination that their use of copyrighted materials is in compliance with Title 17 U.S. Code, the United States Copyright Act, Fair Use, Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, and the Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act of 2002.

Scholarly Communication: We can support faculty at any stage of their research or career. We can help you find open access resources and tools for proper data management and also offer guidance on navigating publishing contracts, understanding author rights, storing your work for long term preservation, and distributing your work to maximize the impact in your field. Additionally, we offer assistance with finding and implementing open educational resources (OER).
