Welcome to the Library!

Academic Resources

Squires Library exists to help provide you with the resources you need to be successful in your study and research.  This guide contains information that will be pertinent to you as a nursing student.  Please browse the content of each tab at the tob of the page and feel free to contact the library with any questions you may have.  We look forward to serving you as you work towards the completion of your degree.  

To use the Library's databases and e-book collections, you will be asked to enter a username and password.  This username and password is your personal username and password information, the same username and password that you enter to login to Moodle, Portico, and your Lee email. 

When you attempt to access the library's databases, you will see the screen below.  As a Lee student, choose the first box.  

You will then be taken to a login screen where you will enter in your own personal username and password.  This is the same info you use to access your LeeU email, Portico, and Moodle.  The screen for Lee students will look like this...


Please contact the Reference desk during library hours at (423) 614-8562 if you have any questions or email us anytime at


Julie has been a part of the Lee family since first attending school here as a freshman in 1993. She began working at Squires Library in 2007 as a cataloging assistant after returning to Lee to complete her bachelor’s degree. After graduating from Lee in 2010, Julie began her graduate studies online through Regent University and graduated in May of 2014 with her M.A. in Communications, with an emphasis in critical film studies. In the spring of 2016, she began another online program, this time through Indiana University.  Julie completed her Master of Library Science degree in the summer of 2018.

Julie is excited to be serving as the library liaison to the School of Nursing. Please feel free to reach out to Julie if you have any questions about utilizing the libraries resources.

Acquiring Library Materials

Books: Lee Online students can request books in the library collection to be sent to them for research. The library will pay for the sending of books by USPS library mail, while the student assumes the cost of returning the materials. The check-out period is 28 days which includes the time required for shipping the items. If the books are needed for a longer period of time, the student can request one 14-day extension of the due date. The cost of any lost items or overdue items will be charged to the student and no additional materials may be borrowed until the charges have been paid. Check out is limited to no more than 10 books at a time.  We are unable to ship books to students who live outside the contiguous United States. 

Alternately, Lee Online students might be able to borrow materials through their local public or college library. The rules and fees vary from one library to another so Lee Online students are encouraged to ask about library services that might be available to them at a library convenient to where they live.

Digital Scans: Currently enrolled Lee University students who are learning from a distance and are not able to visit the physical library building can request digital scans of texts, up to 50 pages,  that are available in the William G. Squires Library and/or the Dixon Pentecostal Research Center physical book collection. The student will have access to scanned material for a total of 30 days. After that time, the scanned texts will no longer be accessible.  This institution reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. Copyright Declaration: The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyright material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research". If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

Articles: Lee Online students can request to have specific journal articles not available in the library collection emailed to them via our Interlibrary Loan Service. Interlibrary loan is a cooperative arrangement by which one library borrows materials from another for the use of its patrons. Squires Library will locate articles in other libraries and obtain them for Lee Online students. These articles will be sent electronically through email.

The Lee University Writing Center exists to help students improve as writers. Trained writing tutors accomplish this goal through collaboration and conversation, not through editing or “correcting” students’ papers for them.  Please be aware that as an online student, you must make certain to sign up for an online appointment.  Click below to view instructions on how to sign up for an online appointment.
