Library Resources for iMEP Students: Overview

Using the Library

Off-Campus Access to E-Resources

Most online library databases and journals can be accessed off-campus through EZProxy. You will need to connect to these e-resources using your NetID and password.

Getting the Full-Text to Articles

Many databases only provide abstracts and not the full-text of articles.  Look for the Get It @ Duke button (the Get It @ Duke icon) near an article citation and click on it to see if the library provides online access. Learn more about Get It @ Duke.

Interlibrary Loan

If the library doesn't provide online access to a particular article, you can still get it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). For each article you want, complete an Interlibrary Loan Request.

Getting Master's Projects

Master's Projects from recent years can be found online at DukeSpace.
