Accessing Library Resources Online

Library users will be required to provide access credentials identifying them as a current student, faculty, or staff for the following services:

Search for and Access Library Subscribed Online Research Resources

In order to perform searches through the EBSCO Discovery Service or to access any of the individual research databases licensed by the EU libraries, you will need a currently active Evangel University student, faculty or staff account.

To search for or access resources:

  • Submit a search using the "Search Everything" search box provided on the library home page or click on any of the individual database links provided on the library's A-Z Databases page.
  • If this is the first time you have tried to connect to an EU library database during your browsing session, you may be prompted to login to your EU student/faculty/staff account using whatever method you currently use to access your email, student portal, etc.
  • If you want to set up bookmarked links to any of the individual databases, you will need to copy the links provided on the database list page from the library website.
  • Students in any Evangel degree program, including AGTS masters and doctoral students, have access to all of the databases licensed by the Evangel University libraries.

Access Your Library Account/Place Hold Requests or MOBIUS Loan Requests

Access to your library account enables you to review the names and due dates of items that you have currently checked out and to renew checked out items.

You may also use your library account’s access credentials to submit requests to place holds on items currently checked out or for books from MOBIUS consortium libraries.

To access your library account or place a hold or MOBIUS book loan request, enter the following when prompted:

  • Your Name
  • Library ID (text will read: "ID followed by your institution code")

    All EU students, faculty, and staff will have a unique ID that accesses their library account. For students, this will be your Evangel student number, followed by the letters “EU” (all caps).

    The number should be very similar to what appears in your student portal credentials but with some extra zeros inserted after the initial number to bring the total number of digits to 11. For instance, your ID may look something like this: 10002345678EU

    If you need to verify your student number, the home page of your student portal account will have the full number listed near the top of the screen.
