While you are away from campus, you have access to many Williams Libraries resources and services:
You can get help with research through our Ask a Librarian service.
All e-books and full-text journal and newspaper articles listed in the library catalog are available from anywhere you have an Internet connection.
- Click on "online access" or "full text available" to get to the "View It" section of the catalog record.
- Click on the link(s) provided to access the item.
- You'll be asked to enter your Williams username and password when you click on the link.
- If you're unable to access an e-book or article directly from the catalog after signing in, try connecting through the proxy server.
See "Researching Off Campus" for more information.
This service is suspended due to the COVID-19 Emergency.
We will scan articles and books that are part of the Williams print collection. Use interlibrary loan to place the request:
- Use the "Article" request.
- If you need only one chapter, use the "Book Chapter" request
- If you need more than one chapter, use the "Book" request. Use the "additional comments" box to tell us which part(s) of the book you need, or say "all" if you need the whole thing.
We will not send physical items (books, audiovisual materials) to you while you're off campus. Check with a library near you to access these items, or use the purchase request form to request an electronic copy.
- Use the "Article" request to get a PDF copy through interlibrary loan.
