Richard Welsh Library: Faculty Resources



Want to Publish?

The Association of Architecture School Librarians Core List of Periodicals is a good place to start finding publications to submit to.

There are many factors to consider when selecting a journal, including:

  • Does my manuscript align with the aims and scope?

  • How quickly can the journal publish my paper?

  • What is the journal’s reputation?

Check out Wiley's Journal Explorer Tool. 

If you are thinking about publishing in an academic journal, check out

Yale University's guide to choosing a journal for publication.


Need Images?

Scholars Resource offers high quality digital images for educational institutions. NewSchool faculty and students can set up an account and log in to access over 25,000 high quality images.


Faculty Services

Library Instruction:

Library Instruction can include an introduction to library collections and resources, research skill building, information literacy, proper use of citations, and subject specific guidance on request. 


 Schedule a Library Instruction session


Class Visit: Library Staff can visit your online classroom to introduce students to library resources and offer instruction. Sessions can be anything from 15 minutes to an hour and are a great way to support students at the beginning of term or prior to a research paper assignment. Example instruction topics include:

  • finding and using images effectively and ethically
  • overview of library resources
  • library databases
  • the research process and tips for thesis
  • evaluating resource reliability
  • using Wikipedia for research
  • plagiarism and APA citation

Any combination of these can be designed to address a specific class project. 


Considerations for Library Instruction

  • Schedule at least two weeks prior to the class period.

  • If you are engaged your students are more likely to join the discussion. We ask that you be present during the session, take part in discussion, and assist in exercises. 

  • If possible we would love to see samples of student work after the sessions have occurred to help us determine what their needs are and how we can best assist them and you. 


Need Lectures?
