We hope everyone is doing well and is safe and healthy. If you're not all of those things, that's okay. It's certainly okay not to be okay right now. These are unsettling times for sure and we know that many of you have a lot of extra stuff on your plate right now. 

The University has a list of resources on myUDC that you can use to help you finish the semester strong.

You are stronger than you know! 

How to Get Articles

We may be closed but we're doing all we can to get you access to the resources you need. Through our Interlibrary Loan Service (ILL) you can request articles from libraries outside of the local area. Since may libraries are impacted by the novel coronavirus response we might not be able to get you every article, but we will do our best to get you as much as we can.

You can request articles through ILL here and you can learn more about the process here.
