Library Quick Links

Your Library

Welcome to your Library!  This guide is meant to help you navigate information searches for your Religions of India or Hinduism and Jaina class, or world religions class working on Indian traditions.

As an LMU student, your OneCard is your passport to enter the Library after 8pm, and for checking out Library materials and using the printers.  All LMU Library online resources -- electronic reference materials, e-books, online periodical indexes, full-text journal articles, and other databases are accessible from off-campus if you have Internet access.  Just go to the Library homepage or, to make it easier, click on the appropriate links in this guide.  For subscription materials, use your MyLMU login name and password when prompted.

Use the same information to request books from Basement Storage (you can initiate the request before you leave for class) and for LINK+ borrowing of books we don't have or that are checked out.
