A Note on Library Resources

As an institution of higher learning and as part of the worldwide community of scholars, Des Moines University is committed to respecting intellectual property rights, appropriately using copyrighted materials, and complying with current copyright law.  Current recommendations by the Library are to provide secure links to licensed content rather than uploading pdf's or other file sharing options.

Important Tip for Faculty: All recommended and required textbooks submitted on textbook adoption forms are purchased or licensed by the library. When instructing students on how to find resources for your class, please remember that all books and ebooks are listed in the library discovery system.  By directing students to the library discovery system, rather than a specific platform (ie Access Medicine), this will help students locate resources directly, access the resources on or off campus, and reinforce that these scholarly resources are provided by the library.
