Many USU students who attend outside of the Logan campus don’t realize they have complete access to the USU’s library system. It’s understandable, considering that the regional campuses do not have physical library spaces. Fortunately, USU’s library offers much more than just a few books as a resource, and regional campus students have the same amount of access as Logan students.
The USU library is massive. There are nearly a million hard copy books, over 600,000 e-books, countless online articles and databases, and more. It can be very overwhelming, but USU librarians have a special ability to sift through everything and help you find exactly what you are looking for, no matter where you attend.
Students attending USU outside of Logan still have the option to chat with a librarian, or book an appointment with a department’s librarian for subject-specific research help. If you decide to set up an appointment, make sure to specify that you will be meeting online, not face to face.
In Canvas, you can find course-specific help through the “Research Help” tab on the left side of the page.
As a current USU student with an A# and log-in, you always have access to the 600,000+ e-books. Access the full collection by going to the E-Book Collections page.
If there is a print book and you would like the hard copy, the library will send it to your home for free along with a prepaid return label. Go to the library website and select “Request Materials” on the right hand side under “Services”.
It doesn’t matter where you are located. As a student, you have access to online articles anywhere by logging into the library website with your A# and password. You will be prompted to input your A# and password as you begin your research. Students can also access magazines and scholarly journals, saving you some serious cash to catch up on the latest edition of Time, Esquire, or even Outside magazine.
If you can’t find a full-text version of an article, chances are the library can get it for you. Just like you did for the print books, select “Request Materials” on the library website under “Services”.
