General Information

Intro to the Education Library: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/educ/videos/intro.mov

This video demonstrates how to access the Education Library website from the main UF Libraries' homepage.  We recommend that you bookmark the website for easy access to the databases and tools that cover education related topics.

Off-campus access to library databases: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/ufproxy.html

The Libraries subscribes to many databases and services that, when you are off campus, require you to identify yourself as a member of the UF community.  You will need to log into the library proxy or the VPN.  We recommend you download the VPN to your computer because it creates a more seamless experience with using our resources.

How to use the library catalog: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/educ/videos/ufcatalog.mov

The library catalog leads you to the book material in print and electronic format that we hold in the UF Libraries' collection.  You can also see what other State institutions have to borrow those materials.  Materials you request are sent to you as a distance student through the interlibrary loan system (policies are at http://illiad.uflib.ufl.edu/illiad/docs/ILLbrochure.pdf).

Types of resources: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/educ/videos/pubtypes.pdf
