Accessing Library Resources from Off-Campus    

We will return normal access for off-campus resources. The library is everywhere you are. 

The Library has compiled a page to help you connect to materials from off-campus.  Research guides  are available to help you find online resources to support your work.  

Most of our collection is available online. Find books and articles using the Library Catalog or one of our databases.

If you're having problems finding information or want to improve your results, schedule an appointment with a librarian. We enjoy working with students on their research projects. 

To search the library off campus go to the library's a-z database list and find the database Article Finder. Click on that link and log in to the database with your chowan email and password.


Library research support continues to be available online or in person.
