For faculty > Course Pack Consultation

LAU Librarians are available to provide course pack consultation service to Faculty. This service aims to assist Faculty in developing and maintaining currency and compliance in their course reading list materials. Furthermore by leveraging the LAU Libraries resources, the cost to the students for a course’s reading materials may be reduced or eliminated.

Specifically, faculty seeking to ensure that their courses are built on recent and accessible supplementary material may request the following:

  1. Review of existing reading lists to:
    1. Inform about Newer edition
    2. Recommend Alternative material – both electronic and print within the LAU Libraries collection
    3. Recommend Supplementary material across a variety of media (eg podcasts, videos, etc.)
    4. Provide links to works that are legally available
    5. Scan portion of the print materials
  2. Review of existing material provided via Blackboard for advice on:
    1. Copyright compliance
      1. Compliance with the TEACH Act best practices
      2. Compliance with “Fair Use” policies
  3. Review of syllabus for recommendations on open educational resources to supplement planned activities

Applications are considered on a rolling basis during the academic year. To benefit from this service, Faculty members are required to:
