A guide for faculty in the College of Education, Health & Human Services about requesting research instruction and using library services.

Use the URL Converter Tool for ALL library links!

We highly recommend that you run ALL library links (yes, even the ones provided to you by the database vendor) through the URL converter tool (below) to ensure that the proxy information is correct. This will ensure that students have access! Just copy and past the Stable URL link into the converter tool (see below) and click the "convert link" button. 

You can also find this off-campus link tool on our webpage.
