A Quick Guide to the Library's Website

This short video tutorial should give you a basic understanding of the library's website

Best Bets

These are some of the key resources that you might use our website for. Also included are links to more library tutorials. 


This guide is meant primarily to show you the basics of using our library's website, and to let you know who to contact for research help. Distance students may not have access to the physical libraries, but there's much more to The University of Alabama Libraries than just print books. Using our library's website, you can find and access eBooks, scholarly journal articles, magazine articles, newspaper articles, streaming video, and more. 

I am the library's liaison to The College of Human Environmental Sciences, so if you have any questions about using the library's resources, or need some extra research help, please feel free to email me at or call me at 205-348-6584.
