Selecting Articles for Course Needs

If you're looking to supplement your course with readings, it is easiest to select content within the Dykes Library collection or that is otherwise available for use via an open access journal. To find our online content, browse our electronic collection using any of the library databases in our database list or by search for specific E-journals and E-books using our E-Resource Finder.

For items that we don't have online, you may request scanning and electronic delivery via our Interlibrary Loan system. The library will decline to scan any materials that it deems to violate Copyright Law. You are also welcome to utilize materials within the library or check them out to copy and/or scan at your convenience using one of our scanners, printers or copiers.

If we do not have access to content you want to use or if you want to use content in a way that doesn't fall within the fair use guidelines you will need to use the Copyright Clearance Center to determine pricing and copyright permissions. When considering this, it is best to set up an appointment with one of our Research and Learning Librarians to guide you through this process.
