Tips for Access to Library Resources

  • The simplest way to initiate library research is to open up your favorite browser and go directly to library.villanova.edu.  MyNova is great for University information, tools and  email but does not enhance the online library experience.
  • Library subscription databases are authenticated with a single sign on.  Once you login to a single database with your Villanova email user name and password you will have access to all others. 
  • You will not be able to access known library resources by simply Googling them. 
  • Firewalls at workplaces are a common impediment to accessing library databases.  To avoid this problem find an open network connection elsewhere.  Few employers IT departments are willing to adjust firewalls.
  • If your can not get onto a database on the weekend, REPORT DATABASE SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS to Access Services 610-519-4270 and UNIT 610-519-7777
