Librarian/Faculty Connection

What can a librarian do for you at Bluegrass Community & Technical College?

See below for some of the services the librarians provide to faculty at the college.

Librarian Services

Academic Research Consultation with a Librarian 

Have an idea for a project, and you are interested in collecting research background information? Want to learn more about how you can use library research materials in your classes? Other questions? We can help with that.

Custom Pathfinders and Guides for Your Class

We can create custom research guides to help meet the needs of a specific class or centered around the needs of a specific assignment. If you teach a subject area and want a guide to help your students focus in on what is available related to that subject, we can customize a guide for that, as well.

Ultra Blackboard Link Creation to Online Library Resources

Do you want to link to a specific library item within your Ultra Bb course shell? We can help!

Classroom Visit (online or in person)

You can request a librarian to visit your class, online or in person. We can do a general overview of all the library has to offer, or we can help your students with finding resources for a specific assignment.

Search Strategies, Source Evaluation, and Citation Help

We specialize in helping people find what they need, assistance with evaluating quality of resources, and helping with source citation location.

Instructional Video

We can help with either finding or creating a library instructional video that you can embed in your course shell.

Course Reserves 

We can assist with guidance and planning for placing items on reserve, so that your students can have access to items they need.

Collection Development

Would you like to recommend the library obtain access to an item that you think would be a valuable resource for you and your students? Please let us know!


Want to get off of the textbook treadmill? Contact the librarians for information about Open Educational Resources/Open Access, to see if this option might be right for you. We can help you navigate the various options.
