Hello! Thank you for your question. You do not need to log in to access library resources.

If items from our collection have been digitized, they will be available via the new Library catalog (see the "Links" section of the item record to open a PDF file of the item). You can also view collections of digitized materials through Collection Discovery in the new catalog. Some of our digital collections are featured at on the Library website as well.

Due to copyright, many of our books and articles cannot be digitized and made available online. The good news is that the Library does lend designated books and send articles electronically in response to Interlibrary Loan requests from other libraries around the world. Contact your local library to request books and articles via Interlibrary Loan. You can read more about our Interlibrary Loan policies and procedures at

If there are specific items that you would like to view, we may be able to scan them for you, depending on the number of items/pages and their condition.

We are happy to help you locate and access materials as we are able, so please do not hesitate to contact us again!
