What Do You Need?

If you're writing, you need reference databases and print/e-books! If listening or viewing, you need streaming databases or CDs/DVDs!

Use databases anywhere with internet! Print books are in the library to check out or use here. Some major reference books are now also databases.

Look for the additional info button (blue "i") beside a title to learn more!

Resources that publishers have made available during COVID-19

Popular limited time resources are listed below.
Note: You may need to be using TCU VPN to access them.


In response to COVID-19, steps we're taking:

1) The entire library building is closed. Physical materials are unavailable. Contact me if you need something and we can check on arrangements.

2) Lots of full text and streaming databases. Look at the database tabs for online resources! Scroll down for "Best of" lists.

3) We are unable to put commercial DVDs into course shells due to copyright and encryption coding. Please see the Video Resources LibGuide  for alternatives.

4) Lots of ebooks available. Limit catalog search to "ebooks".

5) Contact me if you have issues, need or can't find something. 

6) Due dates for materials have been moved to 4/15/20 or 5/15/20. Check your account to see the new due date. If you have a DVD or CD, wait to return it until we reopen. The book drop is murder on those fragile materials.
