Using the Library from Off-Campus 

The Lucy Carson Library is designed to be used from within the library building or from miles away. However, you must be a current student, staff or faculty member to access restricted library resources. The following information is provided to assist users who access the library from off-campus.

Catalog Searching
  
The library catalog contains multiple resources from libraries in the University of Montana and the Montana University Library System. Click on the Library Catalog to search the library materials from off-campus.

You can narrow your search by using fewer keywords. There is an option in the drop down menu on the right where you can specify what materials you are looking for as well as where you are getting your information. You can also choose to search "Journals and Databases" or "Books, Databases, and More."    

Log-In

You must log-in to access all of the electronic library resources, such as databases and journals. From the library "Find Materials" page, click on “Database Search Page” or “List of Electronic Journals.” A log-in prompt will appear during your search. The log-in information is your network ID. In other words, log-in to the library resources in the same way that you log-in to your email account. You must be a current student, staff or faculty member to access restricted library resources.
