The Virtual Library provides online search capabilities, reference materials, databases, journals and other research services to students and faculty.

Accessible through your course in the D2L Learning Management System, the Virtual Library's services are equivalent to the services provided at traditional campus libraries. To access the Virtual Library, go to the course homepage and select the Virtual Library link under Course Resources

Benefits to you include:

  • Easy access to system-wide reference service from any Board of Regents library through e-mail, live chat and reference desk phone support
  • Interlibrary loan services via your home campus
  • Universal borrower card privileges issued via your college or university library of record. This gives you on-campus services and lending privileges to the book and journal collections of the nearest Board of Regents college or university library.
