Electronic Resources Guide

This guide provides linking information for electronic resources..


Electronic resources are licensed materials that are published and delivered electronically. These generally consist of ebooks, ejournals, newspapers, primary materials from archives, or streaming media. Electronic resources are licensed to be accessed to Davidson College faculty/staff/students and therefore require a specific url and will require you to authenticate through our campus security protocols. When accessing electronic materials, use the library provided links.

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

This guide provides troubleshooting tips for some of the most common electronic resource problems. This guide is not intended to be comprehensive, but is a good starting point for common issues. If you have any questions, please email
