How can I get help with my research?
Contact the Physics Librarian, Greg Spano, for help with your science information needs. He can be reached at 504-280-6550, firstname.lastname@example.org (on email and AIM), or in Library Room 320.
Or, stop by the Information Desk on the first floor of the Library, call 504-280-6549, or email email@example.com.
How do I get access to these resources from off campus?
When you click on the link to an electronic resource, you will be asked to log in. Use your UNO ID number (with two zeroes added to the end) as your User ID number. Your pin is changed each semester unless you have changed it youself. Use the "Email My PIN" link to have your PIN emailed to your UNO email account. If you encouter problems or need assistance logging in, contact the Circulation Desk at 504-280-6355.
When I find a citation or abstract, how do I get to the full article?
You can always look it up in the UNO Library Catalog. Search for the journal title (make sure to use the journal title, not the article title!) to see if UNO has an online or print subscription. If we have a subscription, your search results will give you a link to the ejournal, a list of print issues on the shelf, or both.
As a shortcut, if the database record you are looking at has a link that says â€œCheck LinkSource for more informationâ€�, follow that link to have the above steps done for you â€“ youâ€™ll be taken to the e-journal, the list of print copies, or other options.
What if the UNO Library doesnâ€™t have the article or book I need?
There are still ways to get what you need! You can search the database WorldCat to find other nearby libraries that have the book or article (see the LALINC information page for information about using other local libraries), or request that the book or article be sent here through InterLibrary Loan.
