Services for Faculty

We aim to meet the teaching, research, and informational needs of faculty by providing a range of library services and spaces. Click on our guide Faculty Resources to find not only general information on library services supporting faculty research, but also some of the tools which may be used to evaluate faculty research. Below are some of the services commonly used by faculty.

Liaison Librarians

Liaison Librarians are available to assist you with inquiries about resources, instruction and research consultations. Each librarian is responsible for assigned schools, colleges, programs and departments.  A list of librarians and their specific subject assignments is available.

Instruction Program

Course-integrated library instruction


Course Reserves is a service available to Seattle University faculty who wish to use materials from the library's general collection or their own items as supplements to their classes. Reserve materials generally circulate to students in a specific class for short periods of time.

Proxy Borrowing is a privilege extended to faculty to assist with their instruction and research by allowing designated faculty, staff, or students to check out materials from Lemieux Library on their behalf. Materials checked out by a proxy borrower are charged to the faculty member's account, and the faculty member is responsible for the return of these materials and any fees incurred.

The faculty of Jesuit colleges and universities have reciprocal borrowing privileges at all 27 Jesuit member institutions in the United States. Lemieux Library is a program participant. This program is sponsored by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) library directors.

Faculty Lounge

A reading room on the 6th floor of the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons has been reserved for faculty use.
