Resources for ELI Graduate Students

A guide for ELI graduate students in CAP Cohorts.

Overview of Library Services

ELI students can use all of the library's resources and services. 

  • Access books, articles, and other sources: You can explore our digital and print resources through DELCAT Discovery and databases. If we don't have a source you need, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan
  • Use multimedia software, borrow equipment, and get help with projects: Explore resources available through the Student Multimedia Design Center. Find guides for getting started with video, podcast, or graphic design projects. 
  • Find films: Find streaming video and DVDs through the Film & Video Collection
  • Get help with research: Use Ask the Library (chat, text, or email) to get help from a UD Librarian. 

How to Access Databases Off Campus

When you are on campus, you will be able to access databases automatically. When you are off campus, you will be prompted to login through CAS (just like your UD email). If you try the CAS login and it does not work, use the following steps to get off-campus access. 

  • Email the ELI library liaison, Lauren Wallis, to request off campus access. Lauren will email you back to confirm receipt of your message.
  • After 24 business hours, try accessing a database off campus again. If it still does not work, contact Lauren again.

Note: Check your off campus access early in your time at UD so you have it when you need it! If you have time-sensitive research to do and cannot wait 24 hours for access, make a visit to campus and save the articles you find.
