Hastings Library Resources: Home

A one-stop shopping spot for faculty to access many of the resources the Hastings Library has to offer

Welcome to the Hastings Library!

Welcome to the Hastings Library Libguide! This a one-stop shopping place for teachers and faculty to find a variety of resources available through our library. Poke around and see what's here, and also consider ways that you might be able to use a format like this for instruction or content management for students. I can work with you to do that!

I can update the information on here fairly easily, so check back periodically to see what's new! I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!



New and Noteworthy Teacher Resources

Library News!

Welcome back!  I will share news and information about the library on this page throughout the year. It is also a place where you can have quick and easy access to our catalog, Teachingbooks, databases and much more. If you have questions about any of the resources here, or any others, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to help you, as much as I am to teach students!

With this quick access to our catalog, you can check to see if something is available from anywhere!  You can also check to see what books you have out, request books and much more. To do this, you must first log-in using the same username and password that you use for school email. (Please let me know if you have any difficulty logging in!)
