Faculty Information

The details about new resources, requesting material for the collection, placing items on reserve, and other nuts and bolts information about Memorial Library for Berry College faculty.

Liaison Librarians

Contact the liaison librarian for your department to for instructional and research support services for you and your students, as well as to work with you to develop library collections.






Request Materials for Memorial Library Collections

To request materials for the collection, regardless of format, please use our online forms.

Print or Ebook?

  • As you make the decision about requesting print vs. electronic, please consider whether more than one person will need to use an item. 
  • Ebooks come in several configurations, mostly related to how many people can access the item at one time and to what extent content can be printed or downloaded. It will be helpful to know if you think a single user version is sufficient or if multiple simultaneous users will be necessary, and if you have particular needs related to printing and downloading. We especially need to know if you will be expecting your entire class to use the same e-book. 
  • Although you will see duplication in the library catalog, mostly because a significant portion of our ebooks come via bundled packages, we try to avoid buying multiple copies of the same item, either in the same or different formats. If you have an item for which you think multiple copies are needed, please discuss it with the liaison librarian for your department.

Link to Full Text Library Resources

Add links to articles & other full text resources anywhere on that accepts hyperlinks.

It is important to note that for the links to work correctly both on and off campus, you must format the URL correctly. In most cases, you can’t just copy the link from your browser search box.

Copy the link

The method of capturing the link varies from source to source. In general, look for something called a stable link or permalink. Here are some examples:

  • JSTOR: Go to the full text display. In the citation at the top of the article, copy the “Stable URL”.
  • EBSCO databases: ‚ÄčGo to the full text display. In the list of “Tools” to the right of the text, click on “Permalink” and copy the resulting link at the top of the page. If Permalink is not available, click on "Cite" and copy one of the EBSCO links in suggested citations. 
  • ProQuest databases: Go to the full text display. Scroll down to “Indexing Details”. Copy the “Document URL”.
  • Oxford, Wiley & Project Muse journals: Go to the article pdf. Copy the link in your browser search box.

Check for the proxy instructions

Be sure the link includes the text necessary to let students access the material off campus, or using their cell phone data account:  Add this text to the beginning of the URL if necessary.

For example, here's how the the url for "No Throwing Popcorn" from the Feb. 2009 issue of Cartographic Journal would look:
