Remote Access

Many resources are available remotely!

    1) Our digital sources are available to you from off campus. Off campus access instructions are available here.

    2) You may submit Interlibrary Loan requests for articles and book sections (1-2 chapters, generally), including sections of books that we have here at our library. We cannot send physical items (full books, etc) to you off campus.

    3) You may always contact me for help determining whether sources are available remotely or to help you identify sources that are available that may fit your needs.

Search Tip for Primary Sources

Some search terms are more likely to help you discover primary sources within Catalyst (or WorldCat). For example, here are some SUBJECT terms that work well in these searches:
correspondence, diaries, interviews, pamphlets, periodicals, personal narratives, and sources.

Reference works

When using these specialized subject encyclopedias, pay close attention to the names of the scholars who wrote the encyclopedia entries and to the bibliographies included with the entires. You can use these to search for more books or articles by those scholars, or to follow up on the more in-depth reading that the biliographies point out.
