Your library account

If you are a registered student, you have a library account! Use your StarID to log into library resources; present a picture ID at the circulation desk to borrow library materials.

Services & Information

Our Interlibrary Loan service, facilitated through MINITEX, allows users to borrow materials from other libraries.

Requests can be made through OneSearch, or access a blank request form.

Due to time constraints (shipping time, etc.), we are unable to fulfill interlibrary loan requests for distance students. We suggest you make requests through your local library.

When a book request is submitted, the item normally arrives within a week. The loan period is determined by the lending library and is often four to six weeks. Article requests are usually delivered electronically, with access available within a few days.

Please get in touch with the library if you have questions.

Helpful Resources

Make the most of your research time with our quick-access research tools. Research Companion is a great tool that provides research and writing help.
