 Off-Campus Access

When you're looking for research sources, be sure to go through the library website to access them. If you're not on campus, you will also need to log in.

When prompted, enter your barcode number and PIN into the login screen. Your barcode number is the number at the bottom of your library barcode, probably on the back of your University ID:

example of a library barcode; all student barcode numbers start with D and consist of 11 digits, usually starting with 88

If you don't have a library barcode, you can visit the Ask a Librarian page to contact the Reference desk.

Everyone's PIN number is 9999 at the beginning, so unless you reset it at some point, it will still be the same PIN as everyone else. If you reset it and can't remember it, the Reference desk can help with that too.

 What Will You Find in FIND IT?

What FIND IT! Is

  • A search tool that draws results from many of D’Amour Library’s resources, including our catalog and a percentage of our databases
  • A resource for finding information spanning across subject areas, media formats, and intended audiences. With one search you can find books, articles, reports, videos and more


What FIND IT! Is Not

  • It isn't a compilation of all of D’Amour’s resources. FIND IT! gathers results from many—but not all—library collections
  • It's not the only place you should search for information
  • And it's not Google Scholar. Not only are the results not the same, but the way you should search FIND IT! is very different from Google. FIND IT! works off of exact keywords, similar to most databases
