    Accessing Specific Library Resources

    Specific library resources can be accessed from the library's home page in two ways.

    1. Click on "Subject Resources" to get a list of resources organized by discipline.
    2. Click on "Databases A-Z " to get a list of all the resources we have access to electronically.  If you're looking for a particular database or index (Ethnographic Video Online, PubMed, Web of Knowledge, etc.) this will be the best way to get there. 

    Remote access logins (accessing databases from off campus) are the same as your Moodle or UMConnect email accounts.  You will be asked for this information when you use most library resources off campus.  If you are asked for any other logins, please contact Kim or the reference desk (406/243-6866).
