Accessing Resources at UK

Options for accessing online resources while on site:

  • Use our computers:  Visitors to UK Libraries may use one of our "Information Station" computers to access library resources, government resources, "edu" sites, and some selected other websites.  For security reasons we cannot provide access to general search engines like Bing, DuckDuckGo, Google, Yahoo, or most other commercial sites in the .com and other domains.  Please bring a thumb drive with you to save your research, since you will not be able to email it to yourself.  
  • Use your own computer:  Visitors can get a guest ID to log into UK wireless network while on site.  See UK IT help documentation about getting access to UK's Guest wifi.

On-site visitors have access to many of the same resources available to UK students and faculty. Anyone on campus has access to electronic resources and may look through the paper resources.

See Searching InfoKat Discovery for help.
