Governor's School East: For GSE Faculty

Note

In addition to the information and policies on the Home page of this guide, here is some additional information that GSE faculty and staff will find useful.

On this page, you will find information about getting research assistance for your students, borrowing policies for GSE faculty and staff; information on creating a reserve collection for your classes, and policies on using Meredith audiovisual equipment.

Instruction

Research and Instruction Librarians are available to provide support for any research assignments you give your students. Contact them via reference@meredith.edu or 919-760-8095 to schedule a session or consult on a proposed research assignment. 

Borrowing materials

Most library materials may be loaned to Governor’s School faculty and staff until the last week of the Governor’s School session. The loan period for videos is 3 days. Note that the final due date for students will be one week before the end of the Governor's School session.

A valid Meredith ID card must be presented to check out materials, including reserve items. Materials must be renewed in the library.

Reference books and periodicals do not circulate out of the library building unless special permission is given by a staff member.

Governor’s School faculty and staff are not subject to overdue fines for most library materials.  There is a charge of $1.00 per day per item for overdue dvds-to-go.   Charges for lost items will be assessed. There is a charge of $10.00 per day for late laptops.

Create a reserve collection for your students

The reserve collection is shelved by call number at the circulation desk. Reserves may be library books, personal copies, folders of materials, and non-print media. Reference books and library-owned periodicals are not placed on reserve.

Due to copyright restrictions, only 2 photocopies of an article or chapter may be placed on reserve unless special permission from the owner of the copyright is obtained. All photocopied material must display a clear bibliographic citation and will be stamped with a copyright warning.
Forms for listing materials to be placed on reserve are available at the circulation desk and must be filled in by the faculty member.

These lists and materials to be placed on reserve must be brought to the circulation desk at least 2 work days in advance of their anticipated use by students.

To avoid confusion, assignments using reserve materials should not be given to students until the items are already on reserve.

Media Services policies for faculty

AV equipment is an important part of the teaching/learning environment at Meredith.  Technology for the classroom is an expensive resource.   All users must use equipment properly and carefully and must be mindful of equipment security while they are using such equipment.

Media Services is located in the Carlyle Campbell Library and may be reached by calling 760-8444.

Borrowing AV equipment from the AV pool in the library

Governor’s School faculty may borrow circulating Media Services audiovisual equipment from the AV pool for on-campus use.  

The procedures for regular check-out of AV equipment are as follows:

  • Equipment must be reserved in person at Media Services during regular Media Services summer hours.
  • When reserving equipment, Governor’s School faculty must identify themselves as Governor’s School faculty and should present their Meredith ID card.  The reservation slip should include a local campus address and local campus phone number.  If another individual will be picking up the equipment, or if another individual will be using the equipment, this should be noted on the reservation form.
  • Media Services staff will create a reservation slip for Governor’s School faculty users. The slip will indicate check out date and time and return date and time.
  • At the designated time, equipment booked for Governor’s School faculty users will be set out at the Media Services counter for pick up during regular library hours. 
  • Borrowed equipment should be returned to the Media Services counter during regular library hours.
  • Governor’s School faculty are responsible for pick up and prompt return of all borrowed equipment and accessories.  Media Services does not provide delivery or pick up service.
  • Borrowers and/or the Governor’s School are responsible for reimbursing Meredith College for any loss or damage of equipment while in a Governor’s School user's possession, normal wear and tear excepted. 
  • Users should never leave AV equipment unattended, should never allow untrained users to use AV equipment, and should never attempt to alter the normal functioning of any piece of AV equipment
  • All use of Meredith College's AV equipment must be in strict compliance with current copyright laws.  This includes public performances of films and videos.  Ensuring the Governors School's compliance with copyright laws is, of necessity, the sole responsibility of Governor’s School staff.  Governor’s School staff are strongly encouraged to become familiar with copyright laws as they pertain to the Governor’s School program.
  • Failure to abide by the above stated policies for Governor’s School faculty will jeopardize a user's privilege of using Meredith audiovisual resources. 

Using AV equipment assigned to classrooms, auditoriums, and other  campus spaces 

Many pieces of AV equipment are permanently assigned to classrooms, auditoriums, and other spaces on campus.  Governor’s School faculty should respect these assignments and not move equipment from room to room without permission.  All equipment must be used responsibly.

  • Users and/or the Governor’s School are responsible for any loss or damage of any such audiovisual equipment while in a Governor’s School user's possession, normal wear and tear excepted. 
  • Users should never leave AV equipment unattended, should never allow untrained users to use AV equipment, and should never attempt to alter the normal functioning of any piece of AV equipment.
  • For reasons of safety and economy, Governor’s School faculty are encouraged to make sure equipment is properly turned off when it is no longer being used. This is very important for all video and data projectors. Users of such projectors must learn the proper shutdown procedures by calling Media Services (760-8444), or they will risk losing the privilege of using these resources.
  • Governor’s School faculty are encouraged to help secure Meredith’s audiovisual equipment by locking rooms that are not being used whenever possible and appropriate.
  • All use of Meredith College's AV equipment must be in strict compliance with current copyright laws.  This includes public performances of films and videos.  Ensuring the Governors School's compliance with copyright laws is, of necessity, the sole responsibility of Governor’s School staff.  Governor’s School staff are strongly encouraged to become familiar with copyright laws as they pertain to the Governor’s School program.
  • Failure to abide by the above stated policies for Governor’s School faculty will jeopardize a user's privilege of using Meredith audiovisual resources.  Please report equipment problems promptly to Media Services (760-8444).
