Gleeson Library

The Gleeson Library/Geschke Learning Resource Center is constantly increasing its collection to meet the needs of the programs and curricula of the University. The library provides access to thousands of current journals, magazines, and newspapers. It also provides remote and on-campus access to over 200 databases.

Gleeson Library SOE Liaison

In addition, the School of Education has a Gleeson library liaison to help with anything library-related (arranging bibliographic instruction, acquiring books/resources for the library’s collection, etc.).

Library Instruction Session

Faculty are also encouraged to bring their students to the library for a library instruction session during which a librarian will explain how to use the various databases available to SOE students.

Additional Campuses

Faculty teaching at the additional campuses are encouraged to connect with the local librarian. Each campus site should embed the bibliographic instruction session in the cohorts’ first few courses meetings.

Book Reservations

Books on reserve: Faculty may request a book to be put on reserve in the library by contacting Access Services at (415) 422-2662.

Additional services available to faculty, students, and staff include Interlibrary Lending and Link+ access to collections from over 30 libraries, instant messaging and 24/7 reference services, wireless access throughout the library, group study rooms for students (reservations taken at the library circulation desk), and one-on-one, in-depth research consultations with a librarian.
