Using Bunch Library - Fall 2020

Bunch Library resources and services have shifted as a result of COVID-19. This guide will help you understand our current policies and procedures.

Ebooks

Looking for ebooks to use in class? Watch the video for info on how to find them in the library or for free online. 

The library may be able to purchase an unlimited use license for ebooks for your course. To place a request for a single title in ebook format, complete this form. If you would like to check on access and pricing for multiple titles, please email your subject librarian or send the list to research@belmont.edu

Ebooks are available through OneSearch on the library's home page. After entering search terms, use the filters on the left to limit results by Availability to 'Full Text Online' and by Resource Type to 'Books.' 

The Internet Archive National Emergency Library is now available and includes a collection of over 1 million ebooks from many libraries.

Streaming Video

The library offers streaming video via Kanopy and Swank.  If you don’t see the title you want, please request access and we’ll do our best to get it for you.

  • To request a video via Kanopy, search for the video and then scroll down until you see the section that says “videos you can request for your library”.  If the video is listed there, click on it to complete the request form.  The library will receive your request and process it as quickly as possible.  It usually takes around 48 hours to get access to films on Kanopy.
  • To request a video via Swank, you’ll need to be sure that you choose Faculty the first time you access their page.  If you’re not asked if you’re a student or faculty, then you’ll need to create an Instructor account.  After that, you’ll be able to search for and request films using the form on the Swank website.  Requests will be sent to the library, and we will process them as quickly as possible.  It can take up to a week to get access to films on Swank.
  • If the title you’re interested in doesn’t appear in either one, please email research@belmont.edu and we'll see if we can find it elsewhere.

Images

Images can help your students 'picture' your content and lectures. Check out the brief video for more info on our image resources.
