Textbooks @ Touro Libraries: Finding and Linking Library Resources

Information about what textbooks to use and how to access textbooks

Touro College Libraries Online Resources

The TC Libraries continue to maintain a deep and diverse collection of online resources for Touro students, faculty, and staff around the world. This page lists many of them, but there may be others that better fit your needs. Please contact the Libraries for more help if you do not find what you need.

For textbooks, we recommend eBooks with unlimited user access (so an unlimited number of simultaneous users can access the book at the same time).

Note: for these resources, you will need to log in with your TouroOne credentials when prompted, or to begin your library session by logging into TouroOne and selecting the blue library link.

Using Permalinks

Creating persistent links or permalinks ensures that your students will be able to easily access materials you find for them in our online resources. Including the proxy link will prompt Touro users to sign-in, allowing them access. That prefix looks like this:

You can also pull the permalink from Quick Search by selecting the link icon in the top right-hand corner of each listing.

Similar permalink options may be available within each database; try under "More Options" or a similar menu, or contact the TC Libraries for help.

How to Link in Canvas

To add a library resource to a module, click on the plus sign (+) at the top right-hand corner of the module.

Next, select "External URL" from the drop-down menu.

Paste in the permalink and add a title for your resource. You can also check the box indicated if you would like your resource to open in a new page. Then click the blue box that says "Add Item" in the bottom right-hand corner.
