Searching the library catalog

The library catalog contains records for where to find all of the materials we physically own in the library: books, movies, board games, etc. It also contains links to all the e-books and streaming documentaries we own. We share this catalog with libraries around the world which allows us to get print items we don't own from other libraries, but this doesn't apply to e-books.

Searching the catalog for online resources

Click the check box next to charles c. myers library to limit results to resources available through the UD Library. To view only online resources, click the check boxes for eBook and/or eVideo under Format in the left sidebar. Click "show more" if the desired format isn't visible.

Searching Films on Demand

Films on Demand provides access to streaming videos in many different subjects including the humanities, social sciences, science and health, and business. The videos will appear in library catalog searches, but you may also search and browse in the database itself.

Retrieving e-books vs print books

If you found an E-book - Just click on the "access online" button from the catalog.  If you are unsure how to get to the full text check out this guide.  

If you found a print book - First check to see if it is available.  To locate it in the library you will need to know both the collection and the call number.  

Text directions

From the library homepage, click on the My Account Tab (under 'Find Books and Media'), and then Access Your Account.

If this is your first time logging in to your library account, you must first set a password. Click "Set/Reset password."

Next, enter your UD ID number, and click "Request New Password." This will send a link to your UD email address.

When you click the link to set a password in the email, enter your ID number and create a password. The password should be something you will remember that follows the listed guidelines. Finally, click "Change Password."

Now you will be able to log in to your library account.

Once logged in, click on My Account on the right-side of the page for the options dropdown.

From there you can see the items you have checked out, their due dates, as well as renew items that are due soon.
