This webinar will provide an overview of the different streaming media collections the library offers, a demonstration of our new video search site, and tips and tricks to optimally use these videos for research and teaching.

Webinar: Atkins Library eTextbooks Program (recording)

Atkins Library understands the financial burden purchasing several textbooks for each semester can be for students. To help ease this burden, the Library has created the eTextbook program. This program allows professors to search the Library’s extensive list of unlimited user, DRM-free ebooks that are part of our collection, or could be purchased, for use as course adoption titles.

In this Webinar, you’ll find out about the program, see how to request these titles, and gain insight in how you can incorporate these titles in your classes. Andrew Harver, Department of Public Health Sciences, will also talk about his experience using the eTextbook program and using the library materials as part of his course readings.
