Connecting from Off-Campus

Visit If you click on a link to one of our databases, electronic journals, or electronic reserves from an off-campus computer, you will be prompted once to enter your University email and password. If you are already logged in to your email off-campus you will not be prompted to login again. Your username and password for accessing library resources are the same as the username and password used for your Mercyhurst email account.

Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery

During a Mercyhurst University campus closure, you can still submit requests for electronic materials (usually journal articles and e-book chapters), but any requests for print books may be delayed until Mercyhurst University returns to a regular method of operation. Also, some requests for materials held by other libraries may be delayed if those libraries are also closed. Click the link below to submit your ILL requests.
