COVID-19 Library Information

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, lori.kupsky@slu.edu 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, piuscirc@slu.edu or 314-977-3087.

Emailing + Saving PDFs

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. 

Email

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. 

Saving

PDF

  • Click the PDF Full Text link (usually on the left side of the page). 
  • This will open up the PDF. To download and save the PDF, click on the pointed down arrow at the top of the page.
  • Be sure to save to a flash drive. 

HTML

  • Click the save button on the right side of the page. 
  • ‚ÄčIn Chrome, select right click (with your mouse) on this page and select SAVE AS
  • In Internet Explorer, select FILE then SAVE AS from your browser's toolbar above. Be sure to save as a plain text file (.txt) or a 'Web Page, HTML only' file (.html). 
  • In FireFox, select FILE then SAVE FILE AS from your browser's toolbar above. 

Emailing + Saving Ebook Chapters

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:

  • Open the ebook by clicking PDF Full Text. click on "Email Pages" at the top of the screen. 
  • Each book has a specific amount of pages allotted to email/save, and the database will tell you at the top that number.
  • Specify the number of pages you wish to email. Fill in the appropriate fields and click Email PDF. 
  • Saving works the same as emailing; however, the pages will be downloaded to the computer as a PDF. You can then save the pages to a usb flash drive, or attach to an email.
