ProQuest email / export problem

If you use any of the ProQuest Databases (Nursing & Allied Health Database, Dissertations & Theses, etc.) off campus, you have probably encountered a problem when you attempt to export or email citations. Proquest requires you to complete a ReCAPTCHA challenge but it cannot be accomplished through our off campus access.

You must create a “My Research” account in ProQuest in order to email or export from the databases while off campus. Creating the account is very easy – only one step. You can even link your RefWorks account to your My Research account for even easier citation exports.

“Using Library Materials in Online Courses” – New Subject Guide

The Library has made a new subject guide meant to help online instructors use library materials in their classes.
More information and the subject guide can be found HERE.

Links to videos for NURS 7706

If you’re having trouble accessing the videos for NURS 7706, especially when off campus, this might help:

  • Copy the link to the video you want and paste it in the address bar in a new window in your browser
  • Copy this phrase:
  • Paste that phrase in front of the link to the video you put in the address bar in the other tab in your browser; the new link should look something like…
  • Hit Enter or Return

Hopefully this will prompt you to log in when needed if off campus.

If you need help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.
