Course Readings

We can help you integrate library resources such as journal articles or book chapters into your courses by making them available to your students through D2L and ArizonaMed. See also Direct Link Generator & Guidelines for Creating Direct Links.

E-Reserves & Print Reserves

If you need to provide readings outside of D2L or ArizonaMed, we can help you using ERes,  the library's web-based e-reserves system.   Send a bibliography of the items you wish to place in ERes to Reserves.

Print books and AV materials may  be placed on reserve at the Information Desk for student use.  Faculty may request that personal copies be placed on reserve with the understanding that the library cannot be responsible for loss or damage.  Contact Reserves.

Library Guides for Courses

Contact the AHSL librarian at your college to have a guide to library and other information resources created specifically for your course and linked from D2L or ArizonaMed. Your students will be guided to the best resources to support the learning objectives of your course.

Journal Clubs

Provide journal club participants with readings using the web-based ERes system and post discussion points to share with the group.  ERes also contains an electronic bulletin board for participants to post messages.  Send your bibliography of readings to  Reserves to request a Journal Club support page. We will provide you with a direct link to readings to share with the group for ease of access.  See also: Guidance on How to Run a Journal Club

Videos & Video streaming

Integrate videos into your courses for viewing in or out of class. Search the library catalog by keyword or title and limit by format--Film/Video. Over 3,000 catalog records link to video-streamed content ready for viewing. Many other videos have been streamed and upon request you will be provided with a link to the content (Some fees may apply). Submit a video streaming request for an AHSC course.
