Faculty Resources & Services

A guide for faculty regarding Library Resources and Services for them.

Library Resources as Course Materials

The Jessie C. Eury Library's vast collection of online accessible journal articles, ebooks, streaming videos, and audio recordings may be used as course materials to replace or supplement texts by creating a permanent URL. 

  • These permanent URLs are easy for students to access and eliminate the need to scan print items into a PDF.   

  • Creating a link rather than downloading and posting the item or copying a print item avoids copyright issues and is so easy.

  • The link automatically restricts viewing to authorized Lincoln Christian University faculty and students.

  • Users will be prompted to log-in using their LCU username and password.

  • Even though links are permanent, make sure to check links each semester and to update links to the most current resources.

  • Best practices would indicate including full citation information so that students can find the article themselves if needed as well.

Some faculty members prefer to have students search for a specific article in order to gain search skills.  When doing this, please ensure that a full citation to find the article or resource is given.

What if you want to include resources NOT available in Full Text? 

The Jessie C. Eury Library can help you obtain legal copies of those resources, obtain copyright permission, and copyright clearance fees. See the links below for more information. 

The Jessie C. Eury Library encourages you to create links to library content within your courses. 

1. Links to books, ebooks, or streaming videos should link to LCU DISCOVERY.

2. Links to specific articles or a specific chapter of an ebook should link to the actual resource.

Please contact Library staff for assistance in changing your links.
