Off-Campus Research

Need access to a library resource while off-campus?  No problem!  As long as you have internet access, you will be able to access most of our electronic resources

The Library’s databases, e-books, e-journals, streaming services, and online finding aids are available off-campus using your Davidson username and password. Access these through the library catalog, the A-Z list of research tools, and the Archives and Special Collections catalogs.

Submit a Request for Library Materials

Articles and book chapters can be made available electronically through interlibrary loan. Please note that at this time we can receive only electronic items through interlibrary loan and the turn-around time for access to digitized materials may be longer than normal.
