UNM-Taos Library has services and resources for teaching, classroom support, and faculty research. Let us know how we can support you! Call 575-737-6242, email email@example.com, or stop by the library.
Instructors may request Information Literacy Instruction for their classes. In these 90 minute sessions, a librarian will guide students through the basic research process and introduce library resources. Sessions can also be tailored for specific assignments. Please fill out the online form or find a printed form in the library.
Interlibrary Loan is available free of charge, and is a necessary supplement to the Library collection. The Library tries for a 24-hour turnaround in requesting: expect 3-10 days for delivery.
Request for Information: the Library provides a 24-hour turnaround to faculty, staff and students. We’ll locate sources and/or answer nitty gritty research questions.
In person consultation: This is our favorite thing. Make an appointment with the Library Director, or drop in and we’ll do our best to assist with your research and classroom needs.
Recommendation for purchase: faculty are encouraged to examine the Library collection and suggest materials that support UNM Taos course offerings. Our collection does not necessarily include textbooks, but we do work to provide electronic access.
Worldcat and Research Databases: the online catalog also provides access to ebooks and some journal articles. It is possible to search for databases by topic. Can't find what you're looking for? Ask us!
Navigating Copyright in the Classroom
Copyright is a complex and constantly changing topic. Here are some tools and resources to help navigate copyright issues and questions:
ALA’s tool can help gather and analyze information about using copyrighted materials in the classroom.
Stanford University Libraries’ copyright site has up-to-date copyright case information, FAQ’s on copyright and fair use, charts, tools, resources and more.
ALA’s extensive guide on copyright includes tools, resources, articles, books, links, and more.
UNM-Taos Copyright Policy: The TEACH Act: Section 110(2) of the Copyright Act
The Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization Act (TEACH Act) was enacted in 2002 as an amendment to Section 110(2) of the Copyright Act. It is the policy of UNM-Taos to comply with information contained in this legislation.The Library staff are not experts in copyright; and most answers depend on the material being used, so there is no simple guideline. We are happy to walk you through the information. (See also Request for Information.) Here are some links regarding the TEACH Act:
