Get help selecting and purchasing items

Use Library Search to find items in our collections. 

We can also guide you in finding materials of interest, help you identify new titles, and facilitate purchases for our collection, including multi-user online books when available. 

In addition, look for free and openly-licensed resources from providers such as the Open Textbook Library and OpenStax.

Ensure student access 

Whether your course materials are in print or online, we can help you provide access. You can:

Include film and media 

We have a rich collection of documentaries and feature films to support your course plan. You may want to show full-length videos and clips during a class meeting, or through your Canvas course.

Find Video offers tips on how to find video in a variety of formats within our library collection. We can also help you access and use films in your class.

Our Copyright office provides valuable guidance on using video, including in course sites.
