Access materials in discoverE

Finding Phyical Copies of Materials

If an item is available, be sure to note the library and location.  discoverE is the shared catalog for all Emory libraries.  For Woodruff, a stacks map is available. For information about other Emory libraries, click on the library name at the top of this page.

Requesting Materials that are Checked Out, in Storage or at Oxford College Library

First, be sure that you are logged in to discoverE. 
  • If an item shows up as "unavailable" in your search, click on the "Request" button.  The request button will allow you to recall an item from another patron.
  • If the item is in storage, you can request that it be retrieved and brought to one of the libraries. If the item in storage is a journal, you can request a specific article from that journal.
  • Finally if an item is at the Oxford College library, you can request that it be brought to the main campus.

Online Resources

If an item is available electronically, you will see a link for "online resource."  A new window will open with this link, which will lead you to a URL or SFX menu to gain access.

Course Reserves

Currently, discoverE does not connect to the course reserves system.  We are working to make the systems compatible.  

You can reach the course reserves system using the Libraries > Library Tools dropdown at the top right of all Emory Library webpages.

Find out more about course reserves at Emory, or login to the course reserves system.
