Call a librarian to request a library tour or orientation for your class. Allow 7 days advance notice for scheduling. Notify staff of the special research needs of your class so that the tour can be tailored to your students' needs. Fill out a Library Instruction Request Form here.
Be sure to start the semester out right. Take advantage of the many services the library offers by completing the faculty checklist.
Course Reserves and Circulation
Reserves: A yellow reserve card should be filled out for each item being placed on reserve for a class. Indicate how long students may use the item in the library, and when the item should be withdrawn from the reserve collection. The item and card should be brought to Reserve Desk in the library. Please allow 3 days processing time. For additional information, see the AWC Reserve Policy and the NAU-Yuma Reserve Policy.
Circulation: Library cards are issued at the Circulation Desk. Faculty and staff may borrow books through the end of the semester. Videos may be borrowed for 4 days only. Contact Julia Williamson, 317-5884 if you have questions about Reserves or Circulation.
