Welcome SUNY Canton Faculty!
Southworth Library is committed to providing resources and support aimed at research development and enhancing teaching and learning. Below you will find resources that many faculty find helpful. If you do not see what you are looking for, please reach out to us. Please feel free to reach out to us (link to learning commons “meet the staff page) about any of the services you see below that you are interested in. We look forward to collaborating with you and your students.
We support the research endeavors of the campus community. Resources include:
Librarians are available for research consultations by appointment for any member of the campus community as well as students.

Embedding library resources in your class can be a great way to promote student-use of library resources, course reserve materials, and research. Our librarians can work with you to develop a page that can be embedded in specific courses or for specific assignments featuring information such as:
Content development in an ongoing priority at Southworth Library. We strive to develop content that is relevant to our campus, academic programs, and the expansion of information. We are further guided by American Library Association’s statement on intellectual freedom, The Library Bill of Rights, and provisions of the U.S. Copyright Law..
In general, the library prioritizes purchases that are accessible to the greatest number of patrons, i.e. digital books and journals rather than physical print. The library also prioritizes purchases that benefit the entire student body, or cohorts (such as a particular program or major). Finally, the library maintains resources year to year based on usage, with items that are accessed most being prioritized for renewal.
Considerations for submitting a request: Library acquisition requests should reflect goals and objectives of the institution and/or support the ISLOs of SUNY Canton. Southworth Library welcomes acquisition requests prior to March 1st prior to the academic year that the services/resources will be offered. This will allow adequate time for review and budget planning.
