Accessing Library Resources

Current UNH students, faculty, and staff may access most library resources, including databases, from off campus:

  1. Navigate to the resource you want on the UNH Library website.
  2. You will then be asked for your UNH IT ID username and password. (This is the same username and password as MyCourses.)
  3. Once verified, you will be forwarded on to your resource directly.

Once you have logged in, you can access databases and other electronic resources available through the library web site.

For questions about remote access to library resources, please contact us using the Ask a Librarian link above.

Databases for Starting Out

Recommended databases to start with:

Finding Books

The pulldown menu can be set to search UNH Libraries only or broadened to search Boston Library Consortium (BLC) holdings or libraries worldwide (mostly in the US and Canada).

Items not available at the UNH Libraries usually can be requested from BLC or other libraries by using the Request option located on the right side of an item record.


The above is a keyword search of titles, authors, subjects, and content notes.

Results are ranked by relevance. Further refining by date, format, language, and other fields is possible.


Use the UNH Library Catalog to search for a specific title, author, subject, call number, ISBN, etc. held by the UNH Library.

The library catalog will identify books, journal titles (not articles), DVDs/videos, musical scores and recordings, maps, etc. at the Durham and Manchester campus libraries.
