Library Services for Faculty

Here are a few reminders about library services available to support faculty at Alliant.

The library website is http://library.alliant.edu and when you log in to any library service, you use your last name as username and your Alliant ID as password. While you can get to the library website through the portal, you are not required to do so - you can just bookmark the library site and go there directly. Library hours are listed at https://alliant.libguides.com/Service_hours

 

Assessments

If your course involves the use of assessments, you should check out the library’s Assessment Information Hub, located at https://alliant.libguides.com/Tests. As soon as possible, email your test request to your campus librarian and/or library@alliant.edu.
