Use LibrarySearch to search millions of item records available at UO, then narrow your search to remote materials using filters. You can find some journal articles directly through LibrarySearch, but you will likely have better luck searching in databases specific to your subject area, using our BrowZine search interface, or exploring resources temporarily available during the pandemic.
To locate eBooks, check the corresponding box (under the Resource Type filter). You may also want to include Book Chapters. In order to omit resources only available at other Summit libraries, filter to include just UO eResources (under Availability).
Be sure to click Apply to limit your results to your selected filters.
Links on library webpages (including in LibrarySearch, Browzine, and Databases A-Z) run through a proxy server which verifies you are a UO member, and are eligible to access library materials. When you click on a proxied link for the first time in the session, you are prompted to enter your DuckID and password to access the resource.
For certain library resources, using the UO's VPN service will be necessary. VPN is not necessary for Canvas or LibrarySearch access.
If the proxied links or bookmarklet aren't working for you, the VPN lets you join the UO's network from off-campus. Using the VPN slows your internet speed, so only connect when you need to access resources, and disconnect once you're done.

The UO Libraries has launched curbside pickup services to serve your needs. Click the links below to learn about requesting materials and picking them up at Knight Library, the Jaqua Law Library, or the Portland Library and Learning Commons. We also offer home delivery.
Trial databases offer free access for a given period to journal articles and other resources covering many disciplines and special interests—everything from New World cinema to Russian mass media to sports medicine. UO students, faculty, and staff can explore the databases during the trial period and provide feedback on their usefulness. To access these trial databases from off-campus, you must log into the UO VPN Client software.
