Library Classes Helpful to
Students, Faculty

Treasure Coast campus faculty members can schedule “Classroom Instruction on Library Research” sessions for students during class time with Treasure Coast Campus Head Librarian Carla Robinson. The sessions help familiarize students with the library’s resources and how to maximize their research results. Students become acquainted with the wide variety of resources, catalog and databases available at FAU and how to efficiently use their research time. Robinson shows students how to locate information for their courses or specialized subject matters.

“FAU students, faculty members and staff also have access to RefWorks, a program that creates bibliographies as they research their subjects" said Robinson. "RefWorks manages the references and provides a number of tools to help organize, edit and view references in the databases, saving time and increasing efficiency.”

As part of the FAU Library System, the Treasure Coast campus library accesses more than 200 computer databases to assist with student and faculty research needs. Through an intra-library loan system with the Jupiter and Boca campus libraries, students and professors have access to more than one million books, government documents, journals, microfiche and microfilm collections. Library materials can also be accessed worldwide through the inter-library loan service. Robinson and her staff are always willing to lend a helping hand by ordering materials or assisting faculty with special requests.

Treasure Coast campus faculty members may also reserve materials for their students to use. Specialized reference materials and items can be ordered by contacting library staff.

The Treasure Coast campus’ St. Lucie West Library is the only three-partner library system in St. Lucie County. This unique library system was formed as an extensive resource for students, professors, researchers and area residents.
