Library Quick Start Guide for Students

Welcome to the Claremont Colleges Library! Use this guide to get oriented and learn the basics of what the library has to offer.

Get This Item

Once you have found articles you want to read, the  button provides a quick way to find any available online full-text copies or request electronic copies through Resource Sharing.

Step 1:   first looks for any full text of your article that is available in the library's online resources. When it finds full text, you will usually see an "Access Online" link that will take you directly to the article or to a page where you can open the full text as either html or pdf.

 

Step 2:  If the library doesn't have electronic access to the article you need, you can request a copy through Resource Sharing by clicking the green Get This Item button. Within a few days, you will receive an email from the library with a link to a downloadable copy of the article you requested. NOTE: Be sure to download the article as soon as you receive the email; copyright law does not allow the link to remain active for more than a few days.
