The Community Borrower & Researcher program only covers borrowing physical books from the UMD Libraries. Due to licensing restrictions, access to e-resources (including ebooks) from off-campus is only available to current UMD students, faculty, staff, and research affiliates and retired faculty/staff.
Most of our databases, and many of our ebooks can be accessed by visitors on library computers. Just bring a current photo ID to a service desk at any of our Eight Libraries to obtain a guest account, which will allow you to log in to our public computers and use these resources.
Note: there are a few resources that can only be accessed by UMD students, faculty, staff, and research affiliates, as they require authentication with a Directory ID and password even when on campus. These are:
- Chem BioDraw Ultra
- EBL (EBooks)
- SciFinder Scholar
