CEPS Innovation Scholars pages (UNH Durham): Get Started

Shared strategies for finding & using information on your project topics.

Welcome!

 

As your faculty librarian for Engineering, Physical Sciences, Math, & Computer Science, I am committed to helping you with your questions about information and research.  I'd like to help you learn to find the best information for your projects! 

  • Click the blue tabs above to open pages with ideas and resources for different types of information you may need. 
  • To discuss your topic & information needs, contact me to set up a research meeting
  • Ask a question in email or stop by -- my office is in the library in Kingsbury S236!
  • More help:  the UNH Library has three branch libraries, with experienced staff who will help you to find and access books/articles that you have identified.  The staff at the Dimond Circulation Desk & Research Center will help you there!
  • All library staff can show you how to request material that seems to be unavailable at UNH-Durham
  •  Ask-a -Librarian chat and query form: these questions go to any subject librarian who is available
  • Library Technical Support: info to use library resources from off-campus & a form to report access issues
  • Find more information about the library and for your projects 24/7 online at the UNH Library website.

Finding and evaluating information effectively is a vital skill you can cultivate over your lifetime. This guide is just one element of the UNH Library's support for you to find information for this class and also point you toward strategies for information-seeking beyond it.

Library Locations & Hours

Off-Campus Access to UNH Library Resources

Most online UNH Library resources are only accessible to UNH Durham & UNH-Manchester students, faculty, staff, and on-campus visitors.

When you are on campus, you do not have to do anything special to use most online library resources; just access them through the library's website.  From off-campus, there are two ways to access the online resources:

   1.  Start your search on the UNH Library website.  The links for online resources, including databases, e-books, e-journals, streaming videos, and music, are customized to prompt off-campus visitors for a UNH ID and password (just like myCourses) for authentication.

    2. Another way to show you're a Wildcat is to install UNH VPN Pulse Secure with the optional all_traffic configuration on your computer or VPN-compatible device.  When you connect, this gives your computer an "on-campus" IP address.  Regular UNH VPN lets you access UNH software, while the all_traffic configuration provides extra access for library resources in addition to software.

If you have trouble connecting, check your network connection and/or try a different browser.  If there is still a problem, contact me or library staff.  The library has a troubleshooting team at e.resources@unh.edu .  If it is a computer or network issue, we may refer you to Academic Technology.
