Study Abroad Students
Off campus to study abroad? You are still connected to the library resources at the Christopher Center! As long as you have access to the internet, you can log into the databases using your Valpo username and password just as if you were here. You have access to almost all of the databases and full-text content; this includes over 100 databases such as Academic Search Complete, Lexis Nexis Academic, and JSTOR. You also have access to hundreds of ebooks: search both the library catalog and the ebooks collections directly.
Since all interlibrary loan articles are delivered electronically, you can request articles as you always have. Articles will be delivered to you online through your Illiad account and you will be notified of their arrival via email.
Did you find an article that is held in print in the library? First let us know that you are studying abroad and we will also deliver those articles to you electronically! To do so, fill out the form found at http://library.valpo.edu/ill/docdelivery.html. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide international shipping for interlibrary loan books.
If you would like assistance from the library while you are abroad, you can contact us via email or instant messaging. Both are available through our Ask Us! page: http://library.valpo.edu/ref/question.html. Or, contact a subject librarian directly from this listing: http://library.valpo.edu/liaison.html.
We would love to feature you on a READ poster while you are off campus. Send a digital image of you with your favorite book while punting on the Cam or climbing up the Great Wall to Rachael.Muszkiewicz (at) valpo.edu to take part in this program.
