For Distance Faculty
UNTHSC network credentials are needed in order to gain access to Library resources. When presented with the proxy login screen, enter your UNTHSC username (EUID) and password. Visit the Helpdesk for more information about establishing this account.
Entire issues of journals may be accessed from the Journal Finder.
Links to full-text articles are available by performing a search of one of our many databases, accessible from the Lewis Library home page under Shortcuts to Resources > ALL DATABASES A-Z. In most of the databases, you can click on the green UNTHSC link resolver button (sample below) to search for the availability of full text.
After clicking the link resolver button, if you receive the message, “Article is not available in Lewis Library’s collections,” you can request the article by clicking on the link below, “Request a copy of this item through Interlibrary Loan.” Once you have logged in, the form will automatically prepopulate with information about the article. See the Interlibrary Loan Service (ILLiad) information below for more about creating an account and using this service.
Occasionally articles are not available in Lewis Library’s collection. In order to request an article that Lewis Library does not own, distance faculty should establish an ILLiad account. When an article requested is received, a notification e-mail is sent and the article will be available by logging back into this account.
Distance faculty members are eligible to receive materials shipped from the physical collections of Lewis Library at no charge. Make sure you select Distance Education Faculty as your affiliation when you register for this service. Materials eligible for this service include new and circulating books as well as articles. Renew borrowed materials here.
Course reserves can be established to assist with collecting materials related to distance instruction. For more information and to set up reserves for your course, see the Course Reserves page.
Still have questions? See the Course Reserves FAQs for Faculty/Staff.
Instruction librarians are available to deliver remote sessions synchronously or asynchronously as part of your course curriculum via Blackboard, or as individual courses offered on demand.
