Affordable Learning Lander (ALL): Library Resources

Library Materials

Design your courses using library provided resources. Jackson Library offers eBooks, streaming video, and a wide range of databases for peer reviewed articles that you can link to within your courses.

Available eBook Collections

Once you locate a book you would like to use just grab the permalink to add into Blackboard so your students can easily find the eBook.

Course Reserves

Course reserve materials are books, articles, videos, etc., which are set aside by instructors to support class instruction. Reserve materials are kept behind the service desk and may be requested through a service desk worker.

Reserve items are generally listed as 3-hour library use only. This means that the material may not be taken out of the library. However, some items have longer borrowing periods. The borrowing period is set in place by the course instructor and will not be changed by library personnel unless permission is personally granted by the course instructor.

Library Databases

Ways students can use library databases for peer reviewed articles within courses: 

  1. Have your students use their information literacy skills to find peer reviewed articles from citations in your syllabus' reading lists.
  2. Use permalinks for the articles from the database for students to easily find the materials.
  3. Embed materials from some databases directly into Blackboard for student access.

Use our A-Z Database List and search by Subject to see what is available in your discipline. 

Government Information

Government Information is available in print and electronic formats through the library's federal and state depository collections. Access more information about the collection by using our Government Information page.
