Remote Library Resources and Services

The physical library building is closed until further notice. While Broome Library’s in-person services and physical spaces are not available in response to the dynamic situation of COVID-19, online services continue. Our goal is to continue to support the CI’s academic mission through access to virtual resources and by creating ways for the campus community to request physical items from the library. Please see our current services below.

Online Materials and Tools

The Library has access to digital materials available to you on and off campus. Use OneSearch to search for ebooks and journal articles. We have a wide variety of databases to provide access to full text articles. If you are unsure of where to start or what databases might be best for your discipline, check out our Research Guides. We have also created a Library Orientation Guide as a user-friendly way for students to learn about the different offerings currently available through the library.

Broome Library’s team of reference librarians are here to help! We can help you get started on your assignment, provide search tips to get the information you need, and help you learn more about how to use the library for your research. Here are the ways you can connect with us for help:
