Instructional - Guide to the Library for Southwest Faculty: Seeker and LibGuides FAQs

FAQs for faculty

What is Seeker?

Seeker is the seminary's discovery tool and the quickest way to find library resources we have and resources available to you by interlibrary loan.

How can I learn some helpful tips for using Seeker?

Yes! Whether you are new to Southwest or have been teaching here for many years, please take a look at our Seeker tutorials and reach out to the librarians if you desire more one-on-one conversation about optimizing Seeker for your work. Please use this form to request an appointment.

What is a LibGuide?

A LibGuide is an online platform used to organize and disseminate useful information. This guide you are reading is an example of a LibGuide. All the Harrison Library LibGuides can be found here.

Who develops and updates LibGuides?

Most guides are created and maintained by the librarians. Some are made by professors, like this guide about spirituality and mental health counseling created by Professor Jangha. Some are made by a group of staff, faculty, and students working together. If you want to know more about LibGuides, or get involved in creating a guide, please reach out to us with your questions and ideas.

Do you recommend any particular LibGuides for faculty?

They are all useful, but below you will find a hand chosen list of guides we think are particularly useful for Southwest faculty.
