Online Faculty Library Orientation Guide: Welcome

Library Resources for Online Faculty


The purpose of this guide to connect RIT faculty and students to library resources and services that are available to them online. 

A little about myself- my name is Ryan Tolnay and I am the new Global, University Studies, and SOIS Liaison Librarian at RIT Libraries. I would love to collaborate with you and deliver lessons on accessing library resources/research methods, create Infoguides for classes, or anything else related to academic research. 

Potential lessons include (but are not limited to):
•    A short introduction (5-10 minutes) to RIT Libraries and library resources (particularly since the library has temporarily moved and some students do not know)
•    An introduction to academic research and how to evaluate resources
•    Lessons on specific databases that can be used to complete research assignments or projects

I am happy to join classes in person, virtually via Zoom, or even record a video to use as a supplement to your course. I appreciate the limited time you have for each class session and can adapt to any time constraints you may have.

We also have subject specialist librarians available for additional support related to your subject specialty. Their contact information can be found on our Meet Your Librarian page.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you!
