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.

Reserve Readings

If you would like to put material on reserve, fill out our Library Reserve Request form.

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.

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.

eResources & Tutorials

Please see our PowerPoint on Library Databases and eResources, or check out our Guide on the Side interactive tutorials (Part 1Part 2Part 3) for more in-depth learning. You can also view publishers’ tutorials for 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.
