Services for students

They can search for articles in over 30,000 online journals through the library databases.

If an article is not available online, students can request scans of articles from Rolfing Library or other libraries.

Requesting Embedded Instruction

Your liaison can make targeted instructional videos or research guides to help your students with any research assignments they might have for your class. These guides and videos can be embedded in your course page for your students to access at any time. For more general videos which can also be posted in your course page, see our Online Tutorials page.

Electronic Reserves

You can place electronic items in the online course management system. 

Many of the library's articles are available full text in the databases. You can search our databases using the search box just below to see if the article is available full text online. Be sure to check the Full Text box. If so, see our instructions on how to add links to these articles to your Moodle page.

If you need help scanning book chapters or articles not available online, the library can scan up to five items per class. Beyond that, we ask that you or an assistant do the scanning. Contact Rebecca Miller for more information at rmiller@tiu.edu.

Searching all EbscoHost Databases

Search multiple databases at one time. Check the "Full Text" box to limit to online articles.

Books on online course development

Requesting New Ebooks

We will be happy to purchase any available ebooks you might need for your students, including those with multiple user licenses when possible. The benefit of selecting ebooks for your online students lies in the fact that they can be accessed from anywhere and multiple user licenses allow potentially all of your students to access the same ebook simultaneously. Do note than many books are simply not available in electronic format. You can email your requests to your liaison or use our online request form. To see if we might already have the ebook you want, you can use the ebooks search box just below.
