Library Services for the Oceanic Institute
The Libraries have numerous science-based databases, including:
- JSTOR Life Sciences
- Nature Journal Online
- SpringerLink -- featuring 25,000 + ebooks and thousands of science-based journals
Go to HPU Campus Pipeline > Libraries' tab > Databases > then select Natural Sciences for a complete listing of electronic resources that support Oceanic Institute's research.
The Libraries' Catalog
OI faculty and staff have complete borrowing privileges from the University Libraries.
- Use the Library Catalog to search for and locate print and electronic books.
- Use the Online Request Form to have print titles delivered to the OI.
- Access the Library Catalog via HPU Campus Pipeline > Libraries' tab > Library Catalog to authenticate your machine; this will enable you to access and use thousands of science-based eBooks.
Contact Atherton Library (information is to the right of this page) to setup a Library Catalog account; this will enable you to renew your checkouts online, manage your contact information, and other handy things.
The Libraries' Periodicals List
Have a journal title and need to know if the Libraries have it? Check the Periodicals List. And, as above, if you access it via Campus Pipeline, your machine will be authenticated with the journal, and you should be able to access its content, from anywhere. Go to HPU Campus Pipeline > Libraries' tab > Periodicals List.
SFX is the Libraries' link resolver. When you see the SFX icon in a database, select it; if the full-text is available, SFX should route you to it.
If you really need a journal article or book and the Libraries don't have it, submit an Interlibrary Loan and the Libraries will try to borrow it for you. Usually there is a fee, which you'll be asked to pay; sometimes, however, there isn't! And the service can be fast, sometimes taking just a day or two. For more information contact our Interlibrary Loan librarian, Justin Rajkowski, at 544-0210.
Lydia Lee, the Natural Sciences librarian, has created several Research Guides that will benefit your research. Lydia has created rich, dynamic Research Guides for these subjects:

- Environmental Sciences

As above, Go to HPU Campus Pipeline > Libraries' tab > Research Guides, then select the subject relevant to your research. This process will authenticate your machine, and important step, as Lydia has numerous links to important digital resources.
