This guide provides documentation that will help faculty utilize select library resources for instruction.

Library Resources for Faculty

The library has a variety of resources that can be utilized in class and within Blackboard. These resources can enhance your teaching and make learning more interesting for students.

Resources that are currently designed for faculty are listed on the left. Resources are continually added to provide you with fresh content for your courses.

For more information about integrating these resources into Blackboard check out the Library Resources Organization in Blackboard.

To enroll, please contact PJ Grier.

Generate OpenAthens Link

The PCOM Library uses Open Athens to allows users to access licensed resources through a single sign-on prompt. Users accessing a resource will see the PCOM Network Login challenge. For the authentication to work, the URLs for our resources need to have a line of text preceding it called a proxy. 

It often looks like this: https://go.openathens.net/redirector/pcom.edu?uri=.

If you have a URL for a book, chapter, or journal article you need to be proxied for Open Athens, by dropping it below in the “Enter Unproxied URL” prompt.
