Check out the “Also Try” sections on each tab for specialized resources.
- Databases: focused, subject-specific searching & direct access to full-text documents
- eBooks: 45K+ full-text books available at your desk on all subject areas
- eJournals: 40K+ full-text journals for NTIA and NOAA staff, visit NIST Virtual Library for journals for NIST staff. More info about NIST resources.

- Library News: stay up to date on Library events & resources
Electronic Library resources can be accessed on campus from the single search bar, Google Scholar, or any other portal. Access these resources from wireless devices or off-campus by using VPN & remote desktop. Contact your systems administrator for instructions.
Creating a Library account allows you to easily access digital & physical resources in the Library's collection. You have the freedom to pick up items you reserve via your online account at one of two Library locations. A Library account also lets you request document delivery & interlibrary loan (below).
If you have questions about setting up your account, please call (303) 497-3271.
Take your research to the next level by utilizing the 3D Printing Program, interlibrary loan (ILL) system, document delivery, and your library liaison.
The 3D Printing Program provides the use of a Lulzbot Taz6 and limited PLA filament for you to create prototypes and parts for sample collection, spectrometers, mounts, and motors. Training is required for use.
ILL & Document Delivery
The Library's Bibliometrics and 3D Printing Programs can help you to demonstrate the impact of your research.
Bibliometrics can be used to show the impact of your research, identify collaborators and experts, identify emerging research trends, inform research priorities, and choose the most relevant journals for your publication.
The Bibliometrics Program can provide bibliometrics reports with publication and citation analyses for individuals and research groups.
With the 3D Printing Program, create 3D models of research equipment, data, topography and formulas to present during meetings or presentations. Training is required for use.
