How can the Library help you this summer?

Summer term will soon be here and the Gardner-Harvey Library would like to send some reminders about our summer services. The library is open year round to help with library instruction and embedded librarianship, offer a variety of technical equipment, including laptops and iPads, and provide study rooms for quiet study or group work. 

For more information about our services, please check out our Faculty Guide or our Library Services page.

Curious what an embedded librarian can do for your summer course? Having an embedded librarian in your Canvas course sites is a great way to strengthen students’ academic research skills and information literacy.

Looking back over past semesters, did your students struggle with … ?
  • Incorporating scholarly sources in their research projects
  • Evaluating online sources for currency, relevance, accuracy, authority, & purpose
  • Requesting items from other Miami libraries and OhioLINK
  • Citing sources correctly in APA or MLA style
  • Using information ethically (i.e. academic integrity)
Regional campus librarians can help students master these skills through custom research guides embedded in your Canvas course site. Contact us to discuss your goals and we will tailor the guide to match them.

If you already collaborate with an embedded librarian, please let us know that you want to continue the service this summer. We will review your guide to ensure that links are functional and content is up-to-date before classes start.

If you are ready to try a new approach this summer, please contact
