How do I access library resources off campus?

When you select a database off campus it will ask you to login. Use your Ozarks email and password (same as checking your email or logging into Canvas) and this will give you access to resources off campus. 

How do I connect to the Wi-Fi?

Wi-Fi Symbol

If you are using your iPad use this page to troubleshoot. 

If you are on a laptop you should have a Wi-Fi symbol on the bottom right hand corner. Select the UofO network and use your Ozarks login credentials (same username as email without the and same password). You will be connected to the network. If you have trouble see the IT Helpdesk located on the first floor of Robson Library.

How do I find a book?

To find a book in our catalog you can search by keyword, title, or author (last name, first name).

If we do not have the book and you would like to request it through Interlibrary Loan please fill out the ILL Webform.

How do I find scholarly and peer-reviewed articles?

You can use the discovery search bar at the top of each page or select a database and search from a specific database. In each database you have the ability to do an advanced search and select "peer-reviewed" from the left hand side of the database filters. 

If you need assistance please feel free to ask us for help. Anyone staffing the desk can help and if you want to schedule one-on-one time with a librarian you can do so through our book-a-librarian feature.
