Getting Started


This guide has been designed to give you easy access to academic resources while you are abroad. The home page of this guide will provide you with information about how you can access research while abroad. Additionally, you'll find information about establishing a PIN number for off-campus access and links providing access to the HillSearch and many other resources available on the Web. Use the tabs on the top of the page to access specific resources. Those resources include:

E-Books - For those that can't access Stonehill's physical collection, a number of books are available electronically. The WorldCat catalog contains records from libraries across the country and around the world. It can be used to order items from interlibrary loan. If you wish for the MacPhaidin Library to send a resource, then please specify a chapter rather than a whole book. The selected selection from the book can be scanned and sent to your email address.

Online Articles -  A number of articles and journals are available online for research purposes. These databases will provide you with access to articles appearing in scholarly, peer reviewed journals as well as items published in popular sources such as news magazines, newspapers and trade publications.

Interlibrary Loans- Interlibrary Loans can be used to order an article or chapter from a book anywhere in the world.

Citing Your Research- Your professors will likely specify which citation style he or she would like you to use. This page will provide you access to a number of the most frequently-used citation styles. This will also give you a link to RefWorks, an online citation tool.

Help with Off-Campus Access

Current students must first register in order to use the library's online catalogue. Access is simple and requires your name as it appears on your Stonehill ID, your 14 digit barcode number, and a PIN number of your choosing. Once signed up, you will have access to all of Stonehill's electronic resources.
