Services for Faculty


The Columbia University Libraries / Information Services are here to support your teaching and research, providing access to a rich and diverse collection that makes us one of the top five academic research library systems in North America.

Getting Started

Our Research Support services provide both discipline-specific and interdisciplinary assistance. Specialized CourseWorks research guides can be created for disciplines, for an area within a discipline, or for a specific course; these can then be accessed directly from CourseWorks. Contact your subject specialist for more information.

Our teaching support includes a wealth of services provided by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching & Learning, as well as course- and discipline-specific library instruction opportunities.

CLIO is Columbia University Library's catalog, and broader search and discovery system.
