Find Your Curriculum in Our Collections
The Library has textbooks? Actually, our collections hold a rich array of books and eBooks from the same academic publishers faculty already use. Though we do not buy textbooks, many books assigned by instructors are not considered by publishers to be a textbook and are available to add to our collections. Have a book in mind? Check our collections first. We may already have it. While we are talking about textbooks, have you considered using an open education textbook (OER)? These are the same high quality materials available for free to your students!
Be it Videos, Journal Articles, Labs and Simulations, or unique Montana materials, our faculty will work one-on-one with you to identify resources available and help you provide clear access to them.

Instructor Resources for Teaching Research
The library has created and compiled resources to support instructors teaching research and information literacy skills in their own classes, including Lesson Plans, Activities, and Handouts for both in person classes, and online asynchronous classes.
What's Information Literacy? Want your students to learn how to research including Navigating Library Databases ; Narrowing Your Search; Spotting Fake News; Understanding Scholarly Research and more? These are information literacy skills.
Instruction with Video Tutorials Don't have class-time to commit? Have students who missed a library presentation and need to catch up? We have options for you.
Your students need videos/articles/labs/research, and we know you don't need to deal with access and link issues. We can help with that too! You can now access the library directly in Brightspace and pull items from the Library's collections into your course shell. UDX recommends minimal links and clicking to ensure access and use. Use our tool within D2L to help your students get and utilize the information they need to succeed. For more Brightspace help, visit eCats.
