Electronic Resources

We are pleased to be able to offer library visitors access to our electronic resources.

Resources Available Off Campus

There are a few freely available research databases that non-Bucknell users can access from off-campus, including:

If you would like information about a specific database, or want to inquire about availability of additional databases, please contact the Library Services Desk at 570.577.1462, or via email at or browse our Research by Subject guides.

The Bertrand Library offers the following services/resources to guest users:

  • Internet access/Web browsing/e-mail

  • Limited printing (please print wisely)
  • Basic reference assistance (including government information access)
  • Guest wireless access (network is called bucknell_guests)
