Learning Resource Center: Textbooks, Articles

Required textbook lists are due to the LRC at least 11 weeks before the start of each semester. All course required articles need to be vetted by the LRC before syllabi are submitted for posting to WebStudy, at least 4 weeks before the start of the semester. For detailed information about our Learning Resource Center, please check the LRC pages. For your convenience, we’ve included below some helpful videos covering core topics:

Engaged in Human Research
This Organization is engaged in Human Research when its faculty, students or agents in furtherance of a research project obtain: (1) data about the subjects of the research through intervention or interaction with them; (2) identifiable private information about the subjects of the research; or (3) the informed consent of human subjects for the research.

This Organization follows OHRP guidance on “Engagement of Institutions in Research” (http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/policy/engage08.html) to apply this definition. Examples of what constitutes engaged and not engaged can be found in sections III A. and B. of the OHRP guidance document found at http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/policy/engage08.html.


iThenticate is targeted to assist our post-professional and masters students in achieving the highest level of integrity in their written work. Each of our continuing PhD, DSc, DNP/FNP, OTD, SLP, MS, tDPT, Fellowship, and dissertation/capstone phase students can be provided an account with iThenticate that they can use to check the originality of their papers. We request faculty use this service whenever appropriate by:

  1. Encouraging students to use this service prior to submitting work for grading. After the student receives the initial report, he/she can make adjustments and resubmit to iThenticate until the document is ready to be submitted to WebStudy, or
  2. Requiring students to submit written assignments to iThenticate and then submit the final “Similarity Report” to WebStudy. This report (a .pdf document) can be submitted with or in place of their final assignment document.

This service is entirely student driven — Students have been sent instructions on how to submit their papers to iThenticate. Faculty do nothing but encourage or require students to use the service. Please watch an overview of the reports generated by iThenticate in this short video, or read this document.  If you would like more detailed information, check their website and/or their User Manual.
