Helpful library resources for PNWU faculty.

Finding and Using Images

Looking for images to use in teaching or other presentations? Guidelines to Using Images will help you find and use images from PNWU-licensed resources and other sources.

Using Journal Articles or Book Excerpts

Want to know if you can post an article to Moodle or share a book excerpt with your PNWU colleagues? Linking to our online resources is the preferred method, but if you want to post an article or book excerpt to Moodle, check Copyright Clearance Center RightFind to see if a book or journal is covered by our Annual Academic License.

Required Readings

If you want to put copyright protected material on reserve for your course, please fill out our Library Reserve Request form. Reserves typically are for one semester, and the instructor is responsible for requesting or obtaining a legal copy of the work. 

The full list of required textbooks for OMS1 can be found here. You can create durable links to the books in this list by right-clicking on the item and copy/pasting the full URL into your course document or Moodle page.

Note: When assigning readings from eBooks, be sure to include the chapter title or section heading, as most of the eBooks do not have page numbers. 

Durable Links

For help in creating links to online library resources, please review our page on Durable Links. Remember to use the Proxy Generator so restricted resources will work from off campus, and test the links remotely or off-network before you publish them.

Library Instruction

Library staff provide training to PNWU students, faculty, and staff in the use of library resources and services through:

  • In-person instruction, either one-on-one or in a classroom setting
  • Online tutorials and handouts
  • Creation of custom tutorials for specific courses or assignments

To schedule library training for your class or group, please use our library instruction request form. For one-on-one instruction, please stop by the library or make an appointment.


Please see Moodle for self-guided tutorials on using library resources, including  ClinicalKeyProQuest Ebook Central, and Cochrane Library.

Requesting Additional Resources

If you can’t find an article or book in our collection, you can use our Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery service. There is no charge to PNWU faculty, students, or staff for interlibrary loan or document delivery. To request that a book, database, or other item be added to the Library's collection, use the Purchase Request Form.
