Library Services for Faculty

This is a guide for sources available for historians at Boston College targeted for professionals.

Different forms of Faculty Support

The Boston College Libraries are here to support the Boston College populations. The History Librarian (me) is specifically here to support the Department of History's faculty and students. Listed here are a few points (there are more!) with which I would be delighted to help. Please let me know what I can do to support your work, be it your research or your teaching.

    Course Support

    For your classes, I would be happy to provide support with:

    I would also be delighted to provide instruction in the following topic (not limited to):

    • Approaching research
    • Creating a Chicago bibliography and/or using Zotero
    • Reading primary sources
    • Starting a research project

    I have included some examples of specific library handouts I've developed for classes here at BC. I am happy to create something new or tailor these specifically to your classes. 

    Digital Scholarship

    There are multiple aspects of digital scholarship that I would be happy to assist with. If you are interested in any aspect of DS - such as data management, creating maps, or creating a digital exhibits - let me know so that I can help directly or put you in contact with who can.

    ==Examples forthcoming.==

    Individual Research Help

    This guide is not comprehensive, but is intended as a starting point for historical research at Boston College, highlighting some of the most useful resources available through the Libraries and on the web.

    Please don't hesitate to e-mail me or book an appointment with me if you need help with your individual research.

    Suggest a Purchase

    While we work hard to provide students and faculty with fantastic collections and resources, we are always interested to hear suggestions for additional material.

    Please let me know if there is a book that you'd like us to purchase, a new journal or database we should investigate, or if there is a web resource that you'd like to see included in this guide.
