Trouble Accessing A Resource?
If you’re having trouble accessing a database, electronic journal, or an e-book, use the button below to report the problem and get help. If you’re new to CTU, your ID card must be registered with the Library before you can check out books or reach subscription databases. Cards must be renewed every two years. Card Registration is here.

ZoteroBib helps you build a bibliography instantly from any computer or device, without creating an account or installing any software. All you need is a URL, ISBN, DOI, or title to begin creating your list. Check it out here.
The library offers a search tool called EBSCO Discovery Service that integrates records from dozens of electronic databases, some popular open source resources, and the library catalog.
The presentation below will introduce you to the general features of EDS (though your screen will look different because it has been customized for CTU).
You can find EBSCO Discovery Service by looking on the Library’s Research Resources page or by clicking here.
NOTE: As of August 2018, CTU’s catalog records have not been fully integrated into EBSCO Discovery Service. You’ll see book records in your search results but will be unable to see whether CTU has the item on the shelf. Please switch to the VuFind Catalog for accurate information on available books.
