The librarians of Everett Library are dedicated to providing research instruction to the faculty, students, and staff of Queens University of Charlotte.
NOTE: Please allow at least two weeks' advance notice for any in-class instruction request. Also, you will need to be present during your in-class library instruction session.
Research guides are websites that allow librarians to design interactive, online handouts for courses. Each research guide is custom created based on the course assignments and topics. They include links to the most appropriate library resources for each assignment.
If you would like to have a research guide designed for your class, please allow 2 weeks' notice before you need the guide. Email your Library Liaison for more information or to request a research guide.
The selection of information pieces for Everett Library must be viewed within the context of the mission of Queens University of Charlotte and Everett Library. Ultimately, the development and maintenance of the collection of Everett Library lies with the University Librarian. Faculty input is vital to the selection of appropriate materials for inclusion in the Everett Library collection, and Library faculty accept requests for information pieces which may be seen as particularly relevant to a specific class or subject need.
The appropriateness of content to support the academic curriculum of Queens University of Charlotte is the major criteria for evaluating a potential item for inclusion in the collection. Additionally, five factors may also be considered in the purchase of an information piece including:
(a) Lasting value of the content;
(b) Strength of the present holdings in the subject area or related areas;
(d) Type of format and strength of content;
(e) Value of author or reputation of publisher.
The library will consider the acquisition of materials in a variety of formats—print, electronic, and digital. Existing hardware, software, and other library equipment will be considered when selecting materials.
