Off Campus/Remote Library Access

This guide is intended to be a quick, helpful place to answer basic questions about Library Resources -- and how you can access them off campus.

Getting Help - How to Contact Me

I'm still available and happy to assist students, faculty, and staff remotely. The best way to contact me is through email:  I will generally be available 9a-4p M-F EDT and I will do my best to respond to emails within 24 hours. I am happy to make research appointments with those who need them. These can be conducted through Zoom or Google Meet. Email me to set up a time.

Many of the library's resources are already available electronically and remotely. See the "Remote Learning," "Off Campus Access," and "How Do I Find: Books, Journals, Media" tabs on the left of this guide for help in limiting searches specifically to electronic resources, or explore the boxes below. If you need resource that isn't available electronically, please reach out and we'll do our best to help you. 

Off Campus Access to Library Resources

Library resources are available to all Denison Faculty, Staff, and Students -- so when we are off campus, we need to indicate that we are members of the Denison community to access these resources.

We do so by logging into these resources though the Library website

  • First, search for your desired resource, using the Library website as a starting point.
    • Quick access to online content: Summon
    • Quick access to online content: CONSORT
  • When you've found what you're looking for, click on the link for access.
  • You will be asked to log in to online resources, using your MyDenison (email) credentials.
  • When requesting books, you will be asked to log in with your name and D# (including the D) or the 14-digit barcode on the back of your ID.
  • Questions?  Contact us through emailphone, and chat or text.

Finding Ebooks in Summon and Databases


Open Web Ebooks

Summon - Fulltext E-Resources Only

Find all full text electronic resources available through Summon regardless of format. This will include: books, book chapters, journal articles, newspaper articles, journals, and many, many more formats.

NOTE: some databases do not play nicely with Summon (MLA International Bibliography is one example; primary resource databases also fall into this category). So you may still need to visit individual databases to get the best results. See "All Subject / Class Guides" to find databases for a particular subject area.
