Accessing Online Resources from Off-Campus

You can access all of the Library's electronic resources, including our research databases, online journals, and eBooks from off-campus. The best way to get to these resources is through the Library's website with the links below and our online catalog. Any link to a database or journal on these sites will redirect patrons to log in using your My Whittier username and password. After you successfully log in, you will be able to view the article or online resources just as if you were on-campus or in the Library.

Find Articles, Books, and More

dubSearch is Wardman Library’s “discovery layer,” and allows users to perform a single search that includes the records for all media collections in the Library (e.g., physical books, e-books, DVDs and video, full-text scholarly journal articles, and newspapers).

Global Environmental Justice Collection
