Library Services for New Faculty



EKU Library offers many ways to partner with a librarian.

  • Our Liaison Program exists to provide you with a direct avenue of engagement with one of our librarians. Your Library Liaison will reach out to you periodically throughout the year with announcements and updates related to library services and is available to answer any questions you may have.
  • Our Library Instruction Program includes services to support your research assignments, through both synchronous and asynchronous library instruction sessions, and in person or online sessions, depending on your needs. 
  • Request an instruction session by Special Collections and Archives relating to local primary sources and oral history using the Archives Instruction Request page.

TIP! Use the Library Instruction Request Form to schedule synchronous or asynchronous, in person or online instruction.
