Faculty Lounge

Welcome, faculty!

We're committed to providing the resources and assistance you need to engage your students. Our team is ready to help you with your professional research, provide library instruction for your students, or provide resources to enhance your courses.

As a UOPX faculty member, you can access an extensive online resource collection that aligns with our academic catalog. We have highlighted some of the resources and services of interest to our faculty. Many of these resources are designed for you to share in your classroom or offer to your students.

Putting the library in your classroom

Studies have shown that library anxiety is a real issue for some students, and an online library can be overwhelming even if you don't have library anxiety. We want to make your students' experiences with the library as successful (and anxiety-free) as possible and offer some resources and services to help.

Keeping current with your research

We know that staying current with the research in your field can be difficult and time-consuming. We offer a handful of tools that can help you stay on top of your field and find content to share in your classroom.

Search alerts

Search alerts notify you via email when there are new articles that match your search query. Many of our databases in the library offer a search alert service, and options for saving a search will usually appear on the results page after you enter the initial search parameters. Here are the steps for creating a search alert in EBSCOhost and ProQuest, two of our more popular databases.

Journal alerts

Journal alerts notify you via email when new issues of a journal have been added to the library. We’ve included the steps to create journal alerts in EBSCOhost, ProQuest, and Sage Journals, but many of our databases offer this service. Feel free to contact us if you have questions about how to set up an alert in a database that isn't listed.
