What are some ways that the library has supporting you in your teaching, research, and authorship?

I strongly believe that the library’s support makes it possible for me—and through me, my students—to take advantage of our user rights to the maximum. All of my courses are interdisciplinary and do not use single textbooks. This means that I need to compile my own reading lists for each course, and it would cost a lot of money if I were to ask students to purchase all materials. But through the library, students gain access to copyright cleared materials.
