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.
We will scan articles and sections of 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. Due to copyright guidelines we are not able to scan entire books.
- Use the "Article" or "Book Chapter" request to get a PDF copy through interlibrary loan.
- When pick-up or scanning are not viable options, it might be possible for us to ship materials.
- Except in cases of financial need, you are responsible for the cost of returning materials.
- Learn how to request interlibrary loan delivery.
