Having an account password is new for the spring 2013 semester. If it is your first time logging in, you will need to create a password for your account.
Also new this year: You can now search the Library Catalog and Databases all at once!
In addition to searching the Library’s collection of over 60,000 books and media items, our new Catalog allows you to search for over 40,000 full text online ebooks and for full text articles from 19 databases. To read ebooks and online articles from off-campus, you will need your Library card barcode number and account password.
Quick Search will search for items in the Library as well as articles in Academic Search Complete and MasterFile Premier. The limiters in the left sidebar of the search results page let you narrow your search to the format you want (print book, ebook, article, etc.). Use Advanced Search to refine your search right from the start, and to add or remove databases from your search.
The new Library Catalog does not contain all material from all databases! If you are unhappy with your search results, you may want to search our subscription databases directly. The new Library Catalog cannot search the following databases: Auto Repair Reference Center, Book Index with Reviews and Films on Demand.
The new Library Catalog is still a work in progress. Look for improvements throughout the semester!
Want to learn about using the Library’s Catalog and databases? Stop by the Library for one-on-one help, or attend one of the Library’s Student Success Seminars being offered throughout the semester. Look for Research Skills & Resources, Developing Search Statements, and Accessing Library eBooks on the schedule.
