Is Your Library Card Registered?
Each semester, you must register your UDC identification card with the Learning Resources Division library.
This registration provides you access to Consortium borrowing privileges and the library's subscription databases.
Not having a registered card will SEVERELY RESTRICT your ability to use the library's resources when not on the UDC campus.
Cards can be registered at the Circulation Desk, located on the 5th floor of building 41.
This guide provides access to the various research resources available through the Learning Resources Division Library, as well as the Washington Research Libraries Consortium, including books, articles and reference materials -- many of which are available on-line.
It is also a guide that will lead you to other non-library resources for information in the areas of sustainability and environmental science and studies.
This guide is constantly changing: things are added and things are deleted as they become obsolete. Any suggestions regarding the guide's contents are always welcome -- just send an email to rjorgensen [at] udc [dot] edu.
