Library Link in Syllabus Not Working?

Some of your required readings may be available in the Union Institute & University Library. When a reading is available, your instructor will let you know by including a note saying “Available in the UI&U Library.” A link may also be included, but this is not recommend as links are unreliable and prone to breaking. If you encounter a broken link, here is what you can do:

  1. Find it. If a link is not working, you can find your required reading by copy and pasting the title into the search box on the library homepage. Learn more.
  2. Report it. Please let us know about the problem so we can make sure it gets fixed. Send an email to with the following information:
  • Course name and number
  • Detailed description and location of the problem.
  • Example. GART_100_21_A.  Art Appreciation.  In week three, there is a broken link to library ebook The Aesthetic Dimension of Visual Culture
