This is the sign-in page for the library and our main research tool that searches our library's books, e-books, articles, films, encyclopedias, and commentaries, and also suggests books and articles we can borrow from other libraries. Sign in to see sources and save favorites (thumbtack icon). Use filters in the left margin to narrow your search to what you want! Primo is the place to start your research!
An amazing service for you as a student, Fulfillment Services will borrow books and articles for you from other libraries, and if you're a distance student, they'll send you sources at your home or online. Fulfillment Services is part of Primo searching. Click on the following links in Primo to make requests:
- "Request Regent's Copy" to have a book mailed to you at home or placed at the library front desk for you.
- "Request Digital Chapter or PDF" to have just a chapter or part of a book scanned for you.
- "Get it for me from other libraries" to have us borrow it for you (either print book or digital PDF)
- "Still can't find what you need?" to create an ILL request from scratch (for a book, article, or DVD)
Search academic articles on the web to see what is out there, and link this tool to our library's articles by going to the Google Scholar drop down menu, then Settings, then Library Links, then searching for Regent Library & clicking it. If it's linked to us, Google Scholar can show you which articles we already have, and the rest can be requested through our ILL service. This is a great search to try if you are stumped or not sure of the right terminology to use. Also try Google or another search engine for background information and current opinions.
A wonderful database of library catalogs nationwide you can search to see what books are out there (if we don't own them, you can either request via Primo or find at a library near you). Also try Amazon and Google Books, which both give previews of books' tables of contents so you can find chapter titles and page numbers.
