Reynolds Libraries provides off-campus access to database collections with full-text journal, magazine, and newspaper articles as well as eBooks, audiobooks and streaming videos. The guide below outlines the two main ways that you can acquire access to library resources from off campus: retrieving an article from the catalog; or accessing a database/electronic resource directly from the A-Z database list

For general tips about finding full text articles and search strategies, please visit our Research @ Reynolds Guide. If you have any difficulty accessing a resource off campus, don't hesitate to contact us and let us know!

Retrieving an article from the catalog

1. Conduct a search in Catalog

Conduct a catalog search

Conduct a catalog search and select an article from the results list by clicking on "full text available" or the article title itself. Tip: you can limit your search to full text articles only by checking the "Full Text Online" box on the right hand side of the page.

2. Click on Database

Click on Database

On the next page, click on the database link to access article. Note: Sometimes the article is contained in multiple databases. If for some reason you have difficulty accessing an article in a particular database, try a different one when applicable.

4. Retrieve article
