Finding Readings


Linking to Library Resources
We have a detailed guide for linking to e-books and journal articles showing where to locate the stable or permanent link in different databases.  (Note, please link to library resources rather than uploading PDFs of the articles and books into your classroom.) 



Articles (via OneSearch)
Articles from any library database can linked to from classrooms and used as classroom material. OneSearch is the main library search to locate articles and our full list of databases is located here. See what databases are included in OneSearch.

Ebooks (UMGC Collection)
See our list of ebooks that can be used as classroom materials in whole or part here. In addition to the main UMGC Ebook Collection, we have some additional ebook collections here.

If there is something that you would like to use as classroom material that is under copyright and that isn't located in the library databases, you can request whole articles or up to 10% or one chapter of other copyrighted material to be placed as ereserves into your classroom.
