Available Resources

Many of the databases you rely on for scholarly information are proprietary (UWF has to pay for them based on the number of students that use them). Once you graduate, you are always welcome to come back and use our library's resources - in fact we would love to see you again and find out how you are doing in the "real world." Just remember that when you are no longer a student, remote access to our databases will not be an option.

Fortunately, many research facilities and other universities have their own libraries and there is always the local public library. Even if these libraries do not have all you need, they often offer interlibrary loan services.

Don't forget to use the open access resources listed on the Open Education Resources tab. These will remain accessible to you.
