When off campus, you will be asked to sign in using the library's proxy service to access database materials. You will use your DSU account username and password to login.
These resources are available on and off campus, 24 hours a day. Most library databases are available on the library homepage under Research - Complete Database List. Librarians will be happy to answer your questions and/or to show you how to use these tools as the interfaces change or suggest how to incorporate them into coursework.
The library has a range of audio visual, computer, and presentation equipment available for loan to faculty. You can stop by the library to check out the items, but to ensure that the item will be available, please contact the library.
Some of the equipment that is available includes:
Faculty members place material on reserve so that their students in a course can be guaranteed access to the items. When placing items on reserve, the faculty member selects whether the item will be checked out for 4-hours (for use in the library), for 24 hours, for 3 days or for 14 days.
Items that are placed on reserve can be owned by the library or by the faculty member.
The form to request items to be placed on reserve can be found here.
There are many times when you need to know if the library has the full text to a periodical. This process is easily completed by using Journal Finder. Journal Finder will tell you if the Mundt Library has access to the journal or magazine you need -- either 1) online in another database or 2) in print in the library.
Request "Interlibrary Loan" when you need materials (journal articles, books, etc.) that are not available in the Mundt Library and are not accessible online through the Library Catalog or through Journal Finder.
Interlibrary Loan is a service in which libraries borrow from and loan materials to other libraries.
Information about Interlibrary Loan may be found on the Interlibrary Loan webpage. You can also find the Interlibrary Loan webpage by using the "Services" dropdown link on the top of the library homepage.
