Please check the Pius XII Memorial Library website and the Remote Library Resources & Services Guide for updates about library hours, COVID-19 library visit requirements, and services. Wearing masks and social distancing are required when visiting the library. Instructors and students will also need to provide their screening health check results by using the the #CampusClear app that can either be downloaded as app to your phone or on your computer.
Please contact Lori Kupsky, firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about visiting the library to do research. You can also contact someone from the Library Circulation Department if you have any library related questions, email@example.com or 314-977-3087.
Access: Due to licensing restrictions, high school students may access subscription resources (databases and ejournals) on campus only. This includes links to full text.
Most databases have a "Tools" section, usually located on the right side of the page. It is here where students can save, download, and email most articles from our databases.
The easiest way for students to have access to their articles after they leave campus is to email the article to themselves. Simply click on the email icon and fill in the appropriate fields, making sure the HTML or PDF box is checked.
Most students will not need the entire ebook; rather, they will want just one to two chapters. Thus, we recommend students not download the entire book. That process is also very complicated, and is not a workable solution.
To email a chapter or various pages:
Students enrolled in the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program
Books are due back in 3 weeks, but may be renewed
Students not enrolled in the 1818 program should use Interlibrary Loan at their school or public library to borrow Pius Library materials.
