Electronic Resources

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 homepage 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 “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.

Interlibrary Loan Service (ILLiad)

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.

Document Delivery Service

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 Document Delivery service. Materials eligible for this service include new and circulating books as well as articles.  Access Borrowing Account Information to renew materials online.
