Physical Course Materials
These are items requested by faculty and instructors to be made available for short-term lending from the library for their students to use. Items may include library-owned or instructor-owned materials. Want to discuss the library purchasing a copy? Contact us.
How do I submit a request? Accordion Closed
Fill out the Request Course Materials form. The materials are then located, labeled, and placed in the physical collection or electronic versions are sent to you via a stable URL to add to your course shell.
Does the library own your item electronically? Simply copy the permalink from within the eBook and paste it into your course shell.
Due to copyright laws, electronic materials outside of our licensed eContent are not allowed to be used in perpetuity; rather they should be evaluated, modified and or replaced as necessary. Each semester, please use the request form to ask for materials to be turned back on by Cline Library staff.
What types of items can my students check out? Accordion Closed
Print course materials may include books owned by the library or your personal copies, study guides, and media.
Electronic copies, and digital materials such as audio and video, will be sent to you as a stable URL link which you may add to your course shell. We do not advocate for any Library-owned electronic material to be uploaded to BBLearn as a PDF. Instead, please use the permanent links provided in our databases. Need help? Please visit our easy Libguide for more information.
Are there items that cannot be checked out? Accordion Closed
We do not check out periodicals, reference books, microforms, or Interlibrary Loans.

Linking to Cline Library Online Resources Accordion Closed
Cline Library owns thousands of online journals, ebooks and databases. We strongly recommend using permalinks instead of uploading articles, ebooks, etc. to BBlearn or file sharing because:
- Permalinks ensure that you are not in violation of copyright law.
- Permalinked articles from Cline’s online collections are within Disability Services guidelines.
- Permalinks allow the library to maintain accurate usage statistics, which ensures that we continue to purchase and renew the resources you need.
