Most library resources are available via a URL proxy prefix, but you can also download and install the VPN. Being connected to the VPN makes our electronic resources behave as if you were connected to YaleSecure.
Resources accessed from the library website and catalog will automatically use the off-campus access URL prefix. If you are off-campus, not on the VPN, and NOT accessing a resource through the library website, the prefix is https://yale.idm.oclc.org/login?url= ... and you would get to JSTOR by putting that in front of the JSTOR URL: https://yale.idm.oclc.org/login?url=https://jstor.org
Sometimes, we have access to a resource through an aggregator, not the publisher's website. In those cases, checking the library website for access is very useful.
This guide is targeted at the paleontology community at Yale, which is part of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. On this guide, you will find:
- Where to go to find relevant print and electronic resources (including historical materials on the HathiTrust).
- Information about how to contact the Earth & Planetary Sciences subject librarian, Kayleigh Bohémier.
- How to locate journal articles and metrics.
- How to make requests for resources to your librarian.
This page describes how to make requests for new items; how to use QuickSearch (or the old Orbis catalog) to narrow down with facets so you can quickly locate what you need; and contains two feeds from the library catalog that display the print-only books and ebooks that have recently been added to the catalog.
This page talks specifically about ebooks. The Library's ebook environment is complicated. This page contains links to guidance in our collection development policies; information about locating historical digitized materials in the HathiTrust; and showcases some eBook databases and research guides that will make using them easier for you.
Please email me or use the Schedule Appointment button. Appointments will happen using Zoom or other videoconferencing software. Zoom has a phone option for those who need to call in. Depending on current pandemic restrictions and library policy, an in-person option may be available in the scheduler.
My default ONSITE days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. I am OFFSITE most Mondays and Thursdays.
