Access to Online Resources

The UT Libraries offers access to millions of online resources including ebooks, articles, streaming audio and video, maps and more to current UT-Austin students, faculty and staff. In addition to our normally available online resources, we have additional online resources that have been made available temporarily during this time. When accessing Libraries online resources from off-campus, you will be prompted for your EID and required DUO authentication.


  • If you are using Google Scholar from off campus, you can look up any resources you find that are behind a paywall in the Libraries search box.
  • Going directly to a publisher website will not grant you access to the full text through the Libraries subscriptions. Instead, you must find the publication or resource through the Libraries web site or a database linked from the Libraries databases page.
  • Electronic Resources: Troubleshooting: This guide will help you troubleshoot off-campus access.

Borrowing Books, DVDs and other Physical Materials

All materials must be requested through the Library Catalog by UT ID holders for retrieval at the PCL Desk. There is no access to stacks (shelves) in PCL or other library locations to browse and select books on your own.

1. Search for items in the Library Catalog and click "Pick it Up" to place your request. You will be prompted to log in with your UT EID and authenticate with DUO.

2. When your item is available for pick up at the PCL Desk, you will receive an email with instructions about how to retrieve your materials at PCL. You will need your UT ID card to retrieve your materials. It may take up to 3 business days to fulfill your request. If the item isn't on the shelf, we will notify you after searching for it twice.

3. For information about what to expect when you go to PCL to pick up your item, see Building Access.


Proxy Borrowers: Find information and a request form to sponsor a Proxy Borrower to check out Libraries materials on your behalf.

Archives and Special Collections: Find information about access to UT Libraries Archives and Special Collections during this time.
