Important Points to Remember

  • Links break! This happens all the time and can be frustrating. If this happens, please let your librarian know and we can go in and fix the error.
  • Some eBooks have limited user licenses, which means that only one or a few students can read the eBook at one time. When this happens, please try accessing the eBook at a later time.
  • If you would like a chapter scan from a print book and it’s not on the reading list, please feel free to fill out the document scan request form and we can send you a digital copy.
  • Please note that not all library resources function on Edge or Internet Explorer so we strongly recommend using Chrome, Safari, or Firefox.
  • You may see an option to view a book online via GoogleBooks when the book is only available in print in the library. Please note that this is a feature in Talis that we cannot turn off. You will not be able to view the entire book this way.
