- How do I find a list of electronic journals for the main Loyola campus and for the Health Sciences Campus?
Select the Electronic Journals link on the main Loyola Library site libraries.luc.edu/find.htm in order to see a list of full text e-journals available at the main Loyola campus. For a list of full text e-journals available at the Health Sciences Campus, go to the Health Science Library page and choose the "Find a Journal" at the top.
- Can I access Loyola's e-journals from off-campus?
Yes. To access Loyola's e-journals from off-campus you will need to sign into one of our two proxy servers (see below). You must be a current Loyola University Chicago faculty, staff or student to log in and access e-resources from off campus.
The Flagship proxy is for the main campus, which includes the following geographic locations:
- Lakeside campus
- Water Tower campus
- Rome Center campus
The Archer proxy is for the Medical Center campus and current Loyola University Medical Center ID holders. Access to electronic journals subscribed to by LUHSL is limited to Loyola University Health System faculty, staff, and students. For more information read ARCHER's help page.
- I'm having difficulties logging into Flagship. What can I do?
Make sure your Loyola ID and password are correct. To find out if your password has expired, look up your PAM account. After three (3) incorrect logins the system automatically locks you out for 30 minutes.
- Why aren't all E-Journals available on both campuses?
Due to contractual agreements, licenses, and copyright restrictions, access to some electronic resources must be limited to either the Main Campus of Loyola or the Loyola University Health System. Only those employed by or enrolled in Loyola's health-related graduate programs may access the E-Journals specifically licensed to LUHS and only those employees of and students enrolled at the Main Campus can access E-Journals licensed to the LUC Main Campus.
- What if the E-Journal I need is not available at Loyola's main campus, but is owned by the LUHSL or the Loyola Medical Center or vice versa?
Any materials that cannot be accessed from your campus, or that Loyola does not own can always be requested from ILL (Inter-library Loan).
- What if the E-Journal I need is not available at any of Loyola's campuses?
Any materials that Loyola does not own can always be requested from ILL (Inter-library Loan). Remember, if you have an assignment that demands ILL (Inter-library loan) you need to allow for 2-3 days for the acquisition to occur!! Plan early!
