Many of the resources that the library buys for your use are accessible through the library's website. These materials include electronic books, article databases, and electronic journals. Electronic books and journals provide exactly the same information as their print forms. However, unlike their print counterparts you don't have to come to the library to use them -- you can access them anywhere you have an internet connection.
When you access any of the electronic materials from any place off the UDC campus, you will be prompted to log in, the same way you log in to MyUDC. Once logged in, you will be able to use the library resources without restriction.
This page will show you how to access and use online library materials.
The library's many databases help you find individual articles, media, e-books, and other items of information that are available from scholarly and reliable resources.
All of the databases can be used off-campus by logging in with your UDC credentials.
You can see the full list of the library's databases here:
E-books are books, too! They just happen to be available to you online. Just like any of the library's databases, these can be used from anywhere with an Internet connection. When prompted, all you have to do is log-in using your UDC credentials.
Many e-books may be downloaded (chapter-by-chapter or the entire book) and some can even be printed. If you check out an e-book, it will "disappear" from your library account on its due date.
E-books are available in many of the library's databases. You can try a few of them in the list below:
Multimedia resources or databases are where you can find streaming video or audio content. These databases contain news clips, training videos, podcasts, audio stories, and other media content.
