We are happy to help you find academic resources to incorporate into your courses and to also ensure that resources are available for your use on specific dates during a semester.
How to Find
Find out if we have full text access to the articles you would like to assign by searching the title in SuperSearch. If we do not have full text to your article, you can explore other options on our copyright page.
Cut textbook costs by using open educational resources (OER’s), which are free to use academic materials. In addition to textbooks, OER databases often include lesson plans, worksheets, videos, and interactive tutorials.
Read CELT’s guide for finding, evaluating, and selecting textbooks.
How to Request
Learn about your borrowing privileges as well as how to borrow, renew, request, and return materials from Saint Mary’s Libraries.
Place items on course reserves as well as reserve library materials for use on certain dates during a semester.
If we do not own the item that you need, you can suggest a purchase. Your recommendations are critical for developing a sound collection that supports Saint Mary’s curricula, so don’t hesitate to request an item.
How to Share with Students
Because emailing articles to students and uploading articles to Canvas violates copyright law, we recommend linking to library articles, eBooks, and streaming videos using persistent links. Learn how to find and insert library links into Canvas with this guide.
Learn how to share articles, book chapters, and videos without violating copyright. Get an overview of fair use in academia, answers to frequently asked questions, and copyright and Canvas scenarios.
