Database Access - Username/Password

To use the Library's databases and e-book collections, you will be asked to enter a username and password.  This username and password is now your personal username and password information, the same username and password that you enter to login to Moodle, Portico, and your Lee email.  For our Seminary students, this will be your Populi username and password information. 

When you attempt to access the library's databases, you will see the screen below.  If you are a Lee student, choose the first box.  If you are a Seminary Student, choose the second box.  

You will then be taken to a login screen where you will enter in your own personal username and password.  The screen for Lee students will look like this...

  

And the screen for Seminary students will look like this...

Please contact the Reference desk during library hours at (423) 614-8562 if you have any questions or email us anytime at library@leeuniversity.edu

 

Library Resources

Academic Resources

Although it is possible to find some resources by using an Internet search engine, Squires Library provides easy access to a large collection of Academic resources, the use of which will be smiled upon by your professors.  Squires Library provides several different ways to access these library resources and library personnel are available to assist with your research needs.  We encourage you as a distance student to take advantage of these valuable resources made available to you in order to make your academic endeavors a great success.  

Your research should begin on the library's homepage from which students can search through the different available resources.  Theses resources include access to the library’s large collection of books, e-books, as well as many databases that provide indexing and (in many cases) full text of scholarly articles. To access many of the resources available to you as a seminary student enrolled in courses, you will be required to sign in using a specific "username" and "password." The Seminary personnel will provide the "username" and "password" to you or you can contact Squires Library in order to obtain the information.  If you need assistance getting started in your research, the library provides a series of instructional videos.

If you plan to be in the Cleveland area, it would be beneficial for you to arrange for a library orientation session while you are here. It is best to contact the library prior to your visit in order to arrange a meeting with a librarian.  During your visit, a librarian can be available for individual or group training concerning how to use the various resources provided by Squires Library.   

Acquiring Library Resources

Acquiring Resource Materials

Books: Seminary students can request books in the library collection to be sent to them for research. The library will pay for the sending of books by USPS library mail, while the student assumes the cost of returning the materials. The check out period is 28 days which includes the time required for shipping the items. If the books are needed for a longer period of time, the student can request one 14-day extension of the due date. The cost of any lost items or overdue items will be charged to the student and no additional materials may be borrowed until the charges have been paid.  Check out is limited to no more than 10 books at a time.   We are unable to ship books to students who live outside the contiguous United States.    

Articles: Seminary students can request to have specific journal articles emailed or faxed to them.

Off-Campus Interlibrary Loan: Interlibrary loan is a cooperative arrangement by which one library borrows materials from another for the use of its patrons. Squires Library will locate articles in other libraries and obtain them for Seminary students. The online order form for article requests can be found at the following link: Inter-library Loan.  Such materials might be sent to the students electronically (e.g., as an e-mail attachment) or by UPS or the mail system. Sometimes there is a charge for such materials.

Alternately, Seminary students might be able to borrow materials through their local public or college library. The rules and fees vary from one library to another so Seminary students are encouraged to ask about this service at a library convenient to where they live.
