Faculty Resources: Around the Library

Library Improvements

The Library is always hard at work making learning just a little easier! 

  • Computers are regularly updated by the ITS team each semester.  This upgrade means faster start up times and fewer difficulties. Need help? Ask the librarians if you experience any technical issues.
  • New printers--including a high volume color printer--are available for student & faculty use in the library’s reading room on the first floor! Faculty can even print to them from the comfort of the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning!
  • Also new in technology: the Scannx Book Center. The easy touch screen system is available near the copiers on the first floor.
  • Improved signage has been put up to designate locations and library policies more clearly. Book carts are now available in all library locations. Please do not reshelve books; instead, place them on a cart for library staff to reshelve for you!

Academic Center

The Academic Center is a resource for students seeking help in with their writing.  Professional tutors provide expertise and individual assistance on all the fundamentals of writing. The Academic Center is located on the third floor of McEntegart Hall in Room 306.

Tutors provide one-on-one assistance on these basics:

  • Grammar and punctuation
  • Analyzing and understanding assignments
  • Spelling, word choice and sentence structure
  • Planning, executing and revising work

 

In addition, tutors aid and advise students on more complex issues like:

  • Citation styles and procedures, particularly APA/MLA
  • Business and résumé writing
  • Study skills and critical thinking
  • Test preparation

 

The Academic Center is also able to provide one-on-one tutoring in accounting and math.  Accounting is by appointment only, with some weekly drop-in hours.  Math and statistics tutoring is by appointment only.

 

Appointments can be made through the same system used to make room reservations in the Library: https://sjcbrooklyn.mywconline.com/
