Search for Books Worldwide

Use OCLC's WorldCat to search for books in libraries worldwide.  If you find a book that's not available at OBU or HSU, click on the "Request Item" or "Borrow this item from another library" links to access the interlibrary loan form. For more information, see our Interlibrary Loan Policies.

Off-Campus Access

The library's licensed databases and e-journals are available to current students, faculty, and staff.

Off-campus access to these resources is provided through a proxy server.  To access them from home or some other off-campus location:

1.  Go to the library's web site.

2.  Click the resource's link.  An OBU login page will display.

3.  Enter your OBU user name and password (same ones used to log in to OBU e-mail account).  The system will connect to the resource.

4.  To access another licensed resource, use the browser's back arrow to navigate to it.  Click on the resource's link.

5.  To end the proxy session, close your browser.  Inactivity for two hours will also end the session.

If you have problems with off-campus access, make sure your browser software is up-to-date and able to accept cookies. Also, confirm that your network firewall settings allow access to the library’s web site.

For technical assistance, call IT Services at 870-245-5567 or send an e-mail to support@obu.edu.
