For Faculty and Staff

Welcome to the 2009/2010 School Year

Request New Titles What’s missing? Let me know what you think I should buy for the library collections. Before you request an item, please search the Library Catalog to see if we already own it! We also welcome publishers’ catalogs and your bibliographies. Please email me ( with your items. Remember to prioritize if you have many selections.

I welcome your requests for Netflix DVDs. You can preview films for your courses or order films to show in your courses. Because Netflix involve mailings I need a week to schedule. We have a two dvd revolving subscription.

Library Instruction and Class Visits Please request services at least one week in advance for group or individual sessions. For general library instruction, contact Kathy Johnson at 206.676-6825 or, or come by in person to complete scheduling. if you are not sure how library instruction might benefit your students, let’s have a conversation and explore the possibilities. I can also double as a tech trainer for certain technologies and programs.

LibGuides Authored by You If you would like to set up – or have me set up – a customized LibGuide for your class, let me know. Here is an example of what’s possible for a course LibGuide for Harvard-Westlake Middle School Library.

Citation Guides
Many of you already have citation/bibliographic/footnote guides for your students. What if we were to consolidate these and have just two guides: Upper School and Middle School? Just a thought.

Copyright Guidelines In the use of copyrighted works in a digital environment, instructors and/or institutions must reasonably…*

* Limit access only for the time needed to complete the class session or course.
