Welcome to this library resource guide!
We have taken the best of the information resources that the school has to offer and have linked them on this easy to use guide. You can share these URLs with your students, add them to your Blackboard page or simply use them as a guide to finding content. Let us know if you have questions or concerns.
Search the Library Catalog - find a book, an eBook, a movie or an article.
Use the limiters on the side to limit to (for example) just books or just eBooks and put quote marks around phrases when you search (e.g. "teaching methods")
Notice the location. "HPULibraries" for the items that you can access and click the View Now link to find electronic access.
Finding magazines, journals, newspapers, dissertations ......
ProQuest Central via NCLIVE
This resource provides access to about 16,000 magazines, journals and other resources. Find the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times plus many other titles. Just do a search and then limit by type of source, time period or other content items. Next save an article, cite an article or email each item to yourself or to your students.
This database provides access to historical coverage of scholarly journals in a wide range of disciplines. Coverage goes back to the first issue (some as far back as the 1800s), but does not include the most recent issues (usually last 3-5 years).
AVON (Academic Video Online from Alexander Street Press)
VAST is one of our largest streaming services. It includes hundreds of high quality documentaries and other films in all subjects. All of the content is fully captioned and a complete transcript is included. Do a search, find a film and use the URL to share this content with your students or post on BlackBoard.
Films for the Humanities: Films on Demand via NCLIVE
Films for the Humanities (or Films on Demand) provides access to high quality documentary films and news reports. Do a search on your topic and once you find a film, simply share the URL listed with your students or post the link on Blackboard. Each Film is closed captioned and includes a transcript making it easy to follow and to use in papers or projects.
Swank Digital Campus
We use Swank to post access to popular films for all the students in your class to view. Films are posted for an entire semester and the best use of the posting is for a class where the film is an important aspect of class and you want students to view the film more than once. Money Ball, Enron: the smartest guys in the room and The Big Short are examples of just a few films that have been used by professors to enhance class learning.
