Getting Digital Materials

 

 

Online and Distance students have access to all of OLLU's online resources. Please email the library or call us at 210-431-5575 or 1-800-846-4085 if you have difficulty accessing OLLU's  databases or other online resources.

 

Databases

The complete list of the library's databases, all of which can be accessed online or from off-campus. Search by subject, or search the title if you already know which database you need.

 

eBooks

Here you will find the library's collection of nearly 50,000 Ebsco eBooks. You can't "check out" eBooks, but you can read them right from your browser.

 

Full Text Finder

Full Text Finder contains all of the journals that the library has access to, either in print or online. Browse by subject, or search for a particular title. For journals only available in print, submit a Get It 4 Me request and we'll send you a copy of the article you need.

 

E-Reserves

Online access to all of our electronic course reserves. Search by course, department or instructor.

 

 

 

 

Getting Physical Materials

 

Online and Distance students at OLLU have access to the same research materials that students on campus have access to. In addition to Get It 4 Me and TexShare, the OLLU library will mail books to your home for FREE along with pre-paid return postage. You just mail them back to us when you're done!

 

 

Print Books & Articles

If you find a book in our catalog, or an article that we have in print, we will send them to you for FREE! We will mail print books to your home along with pre-paid return postage, which you can keep for up to one month with renewals. Or we will scan a copy of a print article and send it to your email.

 

To request a print book or article, just log in to Get It 4 Me. Fill in the required information and we will send you what you need.

 

Get It 4 Me

Online and Distance students can also request items the OLLU library doesn't have, by submitting a Get It 4 Me request. If you find a book or article that you need but OLLU doesn't have a copy, just fill out the request in Get It 4 Me, our Interlibrary Loan system, and we'll find a library that has a copy and get it for you! We will mail books to your home, or send a scanned PDF copy of an article to your email.

 

TexShare

OLLU students, including Online and Distance students, can also borrow books from other libraries. With the TexShare Program you can get a library card that will allow you to borrow books from other libraries throughout Texas. Email the library to find out how to get your TexShare card.
