Library Instruction

We want all our faculty to know that we can still provide options for providing your class with library instruction. We can do live Zoom sessions or if you're opting for a more asynchronous format, our librarians can create research guides and online tutorials. 

Zoom Sessions: Contact Carleen Huxley or Anne Zwicky. You can also fill out the library instruction request form and indicate that you would like a Zoom session.

Online Tutorials: Contact Jesús Serrato if you'd like help creating an interactive online tutorial. You can also fill out the library online tutorial request form. 

eBook Resources

Just a friendly reminder that the UHD library offers access to over 350,000 eBooks across all subject areas.

If you'd like us to find a specific eBook, please email Steve Bonario or your subject librarian. All we need to get started is the title and/or ISBN number of the eBook you're looking for. Otherwise, to browse available eBooks by subject, the LibSearch tool on the library's homepage is a good starting point.

If you need a specific eBook title, search our eBook services here. eBook Central is the best place to start.
