Library Resources for Students
Hello Students! This guide brings together information about resources available to you through the library to help you complete your coursework online. You're welcome to contact a librarian for further assistance either by emailing us (see contact information) or use the search box below to ask a question.
Off-Campus Access to Resources
To access subscription library resources from off campus:
- Always go through links found on Moon Library's website: http://www.esf.edu/moonlib/
- Navigate to and select the resource you are looking for (JSTOR, Academic Search Complete, etc.)
- You will be asked for your username and password which is your current ESF Net ID and your default password is the first 9 digits on your ESF ID card (no dashes or spaces). Ignore the 10th digit.
This link gives you tips on using and logging into Primo which is Moon Library's discovery search (the main search box on our website: www.esf.edu/moonlib) in which you will find articles, ebooks, and other materials available through the library. Contact a librarian for in depth assistance with searching.
See this list for all databases and resources subscribed to by Moon Library. There are also links to Open Access resources. Searching a more specialized database can help narrow down useful resources on your topic.
Use interlibrary loan to request books and articles not owned by ESF. If you can't access an article through Primo or other means, please submit a request and a link to a pdf will be sent to your email. As of now, books will still need to be picked up in Moon Library.
Here is information about reserve books available in the library. Stay tuned for more information about access to these virtually.
Use a citation manager to help you store, organize, and cite your work. This guide will introduce you to Zotero and Mendeley. There are also videos to help you set up a citation manager.
Here you will find guides with specific resources for programs of study in each academic department. Just click on Subject Guide. Here you can also browse other guides on many topics and courses.
This guide will describe how to find, view, and download ebooks from our ebook database.
