  • When accessing library resources online, you will be presented with the proxy login screen. Log in with 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. You can also connect to full-text articles by searching library databases. See the A-Z Database List for a complete list. If full-text is not available, click on the green UNTHSC link resolver button to search for the availability of full text in other library databases. 
  • If you click on the link resolver button and receive the message, “Article is not available in Lewis Library’s collections,” request the article by clicking on “Request a copy of this item through Interlibrary Loan.” 

Interlibrary Loan Service (ILLiad)

  • 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.
