Library Services to Online Students

The Clara Fritzsche Library provides online students at Notre Dame access to over a hundred databases, many of which include the full-text of articles you can use for your research. Access the databases with the same login you use for MyNDC.

If you live in or near Ohio, you may also borrow print materials held by this and other libraries that are members of OhioLINK, a consortium of over 80 college and university libraries all over Ohio. Activate your NDC library account by submitting a completed Library Circulation Agreement, available here, and we will provide you with credentials for use on the OhioLINK Central Catalog. Use the OhioLINK Catalog to request and pick up materials at the OhioLINK library nearest you. 

Use the following links to check your patron record, locate OhioLINK libraries, identify and request materials, and access online resources such as full-text journal articles:

Special Notice For Online Students Residing Outside Ohio

While electronic resources are available to you through our library, at this time we are unable to provide circulation services beyond Ohio state lines. You will need to access print materials on your own, using the library resources available to you in your local area. We offer the following suggestions for locating and/or accessing material without the need to travel to Ohio:

  • OhioLINK Electronic Book Center – contains thousands of scholarly and reference e-books in several subject areas, accessible by keyword search and by title-browsing within subject area.
  • WorldCat.org – this publicly-accessible version of the WorldCat bibliographic database has a simple search interface and can list the libraries that own a book by their distance from the ZIP code you enter.
    Connect to this resource at www.worldcat.org/ 

Please feel free to contact us for assistance with any questions.
