Using OneSearch and Off Campus Access to Library Resources

Staging OneSearch Permalinks In Canvas to Create Easy Access to Resources


Every OneSearch record has a permalink.  By staging these permalinks directly in Canvas you can provide stable and streamlined student access to the resources.

Embedding Videos

All of the library's streaming videos are licensed for classroom use.  While adding a video to course reserves remains the best practice, it is also possible to embed streaming videos directly in Canvas.

The process is similar for each of the library's streaming video collections:

Course Reserves

  Course Reserves

We can assist faculty in making course materials available digitally, either using already library-licensed digital materials or, in some cases, by licensing ebooks via faculty requests.  Unfortunately, we are unable to provide print and physical course reserves in academic year 22-23.

To place e-materials on reserve, check OneSearch to see if the library already owns the item. If you find an electronic copy in OneSearch, please  fill out a Course Reserves request form, and include a OneSearch permalink to the item in the “Special Instructions” box. Placing it on Course Reserves makes it easy for students to find and for us to ensure that the licenses stay current.

If you cannot find the item you are looking for in OneSearch, submit an E-Reserves Purchase Request Form.

Accessing Course Reserves and Materials

To access course reserves you can search for course reserves and materials by course number (ie COMS 101) or instructor name
