Rae and Alex
First and foremost, we're here to help you succeed with your online classes!
Rae Thudium: Interim Head. Ask Rae about searching the literature.
Alex Boeckman: Senior Library Specialist. Ask Alex about InterLibrary Loan and Document Delivery.
Actually, ask either of us anything!
Use your username or VPN
You can get to our online journals and books from anywhere in the world. Start from a library page and enter your username (first part of your email address and your email password) when you reach the MU Libraries Proxy server. You can also use the MU VPN to get into library resources. More information on off-campus access.
If you need a journal article that's in print at the vet library, we'll scan it for you.
In all of the library databases (PubMed; Scopus; Web of Science; etc.), you'll see a FindIt@MU button linking you to the Libraries' subscription. If the article is available in print in the vet library or anywhere else on campus, click on Request a Copy to use our Document Delivery service. We'll scan and send it to you (for free! what a deal!).
If you need a journal article that MU doesn't have it, we'll get it for you.
If FindIt@MU says that the item is not available on campus, click on Request a Copy to use our InterLibrary Loan service. We'll get the article from another library and send it to you electronically.
Pro Tip: If you end up at a publisher's web site that asks you to pay for an article, don't do it! Access the journals via library pages to be connected to our subscriptions.
Pro Tip: Configure Google Scholar to show the FindIt@MU information on your results page. You can install the Google Scholar browser plug-in.
