ORU databases, including full text articles, journals and ebooks, are fee-based resources and, as such, are generally restricted to ORU students, faculty and staff. For off-campus access it is necessary to login with your ORU Novell username and password when prompted.

As part of the ORU community you have an electronic library available 24/7 from on or off campus, including 28,000+ full text periodicals, 90+ dynamic databases, ebook collections with more than 56,000 ebooks, eaudiobooks and more.

Your electronic library also includes a variety of unique and useful user friendly database personal information management tools--save, write notes, highlight, get citations, text-to-speech/download to MP3 format, create web links and more, according to your needs and preferences. (See the Library Research Guides.)

To Log in from Off-Campus:

  1. Go to the Library page
  2. Click the Off-Campus Access bar or the link at the top of the page.
