Frequently Asked Questions
A: Preceptors must first contact Jennifer Ridings-Myhra: (512) 475-9752, firstname.lastname@example.org to request library privileges, then use their UT EID/password for access to these resources.
Q: Some of the links take me directly to the reference title I’m interested in. Others just take me to the database provider and then I have to look for the title I want. Why is that?
A: Some of our database providers supply a method for deep linking to individual titles. When possible we use those to link directly. Otherwise, we can only link you to the service and then you will have to find the title of interest. In some cases you can’t see the individual titles that are available until after you complete a search.
Q: I am a student on rotation assigned outside Austin. Is there a way for me to get a copy of an article that is only available in print in the library?
A: D-Doc service provided through Inter Library Services (ILS) supplies materials for you whether they are in the library or not. Go to the D-Doc page and choose "ILS Login." Enter your UT EID and password, and then at the Main Menu, choose "Change User Information." At the bottom of the "Personal Information" page, change "Location Status" to "Distance Learner." Choose "Submit" and then choose the appropriate New Request.
For more information about D-Doc, check the ILS FAQ page.
A: Any UT student, staff or faculty member can use these resources with current UT EID.
