Start with Adler University Library resources:
- Reliable scholarly and professional literature
- No copyright limitations
- Guaranteed access for our students
This guide will show you how to use our databases and catalog, and you can always have a Zoom meeting with the librarian on your course design team for additional assistance.
See the document below for a reminder of points from your kickoff call and important links.
If you are doing your research in other libraries:
- If you have access to another university's library, don't use links to resources you find in that library in your course plan as they won't work for Adler students.
- Use the links to the right to see if we provide access to the same article or place a request for it through ILLiad.
Consider access issues with print, and cost to students:
- If you want to use a single book throughout the course, ask the librarian if it's available as an e-book.
- If it is, the Library will purchase an e-book copy as a back-up reserve copy for students.
- If it isn't, the library cannot provide a reserve copy for students.
- Either way, students will still have to purchase their textbooks--many library e-books are only available to three or fewer students at one time.
- Please consider our students overseas who may face delays in getting print textbooks delivered in time for the start of classes, as well as financial implications.
- The librarian can help you identify e-books owned by Adler's library as well as scholarly open access materials. Or, consider using scholarly journal articles and chapters from e-books owned by the library as weekly readings.
