Pacific Islands Studies

Access to Print Resources (as of 3/20/20)

 

As part of UCLA's transition to remote instruction, and the Library's necessary decision to close all Library locations, access to print resources and special collections is not available. Please take advantage of electronic resources such as ebooks and article databases. The UCLA community can connect to these online resources off-campus via the VPN or proxy server. Interlibrary loan is still available for electronic journal articles; however, ebooks cannot be borrowed on interlibrary loan. You can also temporarily access digitized print books via HathiTrust, although you cannot download or print these books--only do screenshots.

The library is also extending access to our print collection beyond what's available in HathiTrust through the Pilot Emergency Temporary Digititzation on Request Service (PETDOR). Please review the PETDOR FAQ for guidance on using this service. 

For help with any of our resources, please schedule an appointment with a librarian (audio/video Zoom appointments available), contact your subject librarian directly, or use our 24/7 chat service.    

    

Accessing Resources Remotely

  • Expanded eBook Access  - Major ebook vendors ProQuestEBSCO, and JSTOR (see links for details) are providing expanded access to ebooks from participating publishers. Access requires authentication. (For help, start with our ebooks tutorial—available as a video or a PDF!) 

Researching the Pacific Islands in the UCLA Library

This guide serves as a starting point for researchers and students interested in Pacific Islands Studies. It contains information on selected resources from the UCLA collections, as well as provides links to materials that are freely accessible elsewhere. This guide provides information on both print and electronic resources, as well as materials in other formats (e.g., microforms, films, images, etc.). (Please note that off-campus access to licensed resources requires user authentication through the proxy server.)

Note: If you have any suggestions or recommendations, please feel free to email me or leave a comment on any of the boxes in this guide.
