The library contains a wide variety of resources available for online courses, including articles, e-books, and streaming videos. Including library resources in a course encourages students to use the library, prevents copyright concerns, and ensures students can obtain a copy of the readings assigned.

The following required readings are available in the UI&U Library. Instructions: 1) open a new tab/window in your browser, 2) go to the library homepage (library.myunion.edu), 3) copy & paste the title into the OneSearch search box, and 4) click the “read online” or “watch online” link. If there are too many search results, try adding the author’s last name or quotation marks around the title. You can also use the left sidebar to limit the source type to ebooks, videos, or journal articles.
The library has subscriptions to several video collections. The easiest way to share a video is using a non-hyperlinked “Available in the UI&U Library” message. Videos from Films on Demand, Alexander Street Press, and Kanopy can also be embedded. Psychotherapy.net videos can be embedded by creating a video clip to embed. Please remember to include the citation information with the video.
Our librarians recently discovered that there is a display problem with Films on Demand videos embedded in Brightspace courses. These videos sometimes display incorrectly as a grey box with an error message. The problem is being caused by security settings. Brightspace technical support is aware of the problem and is working to resolve it as quickly as possible.
As a temporary workaround, students can watch videos by going to the library website and copy and pasting the video title into OneSearch.
If the video title is unavailable, embedded videos can be watched using the steps below, but only using the Firefox browser (Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome will not work):
Permalinks or direct links to library resources are unreliable and not recommended. However, in certain circumstances, for example, when a resource cannot be found using OneSearch, creating a permalink may be the best solution. Please contact a librarian for assistance in this situation.
