Top 3 Tips for Grad Students

Here are some quick tips that should come in handy during your first term at Moore.

1. Accessing JSTOR & ARTstor from off campus

JSTOR, a full-text archive of over one thousand journals, and ARTstor, a digital image database, are accessible from off campus. For off campus access, you just need to register with each database.



Both ARTstor and JSTOR allow you to register by visiting their websites (but you must be using the library’s computers while registering the first time!) Setting up an account is quite easy and takes only a minute. For specific instructions on gaining off campus access, just ask at the front desk and we’ll be happy to assist you.

2. Printing

Your print credits should now be working! Once you sign onto a library computer, you’ll be prompted to login to access the printer (pictured on the right). Your Username will be your last name,  a space, and your first name. The password will be the number on the back of your Moore ID.

3. Reciprocal Libraries and Interlibrary Loan

Did you know that as a Moore student you have access to nearly 50 libraries in the Delaware Valley? Connelly Library is part of a regional library consortium, which gives you borrowing privileges at every institution in the group (see our map to view participating libraries.) A great option for those who need a library or place to study that’s closer to home!

Can’t find a book you need for your research? Place an Interlibrary Loan request and we’ll find it for you. Interlibrary Loan request forms are available at the circulation desk–just be sure to plan ahead, as requests can take 1 to 4 weeks to arrive depending on the item’s availability.

Visit our Reciprocal Libraries page for additional information on obtaining access to reciprocal libraries and requesting items through Interlibrary Loan.

Some date back as far as the mid-1800s through present day. The artists are largely alumni or faculty of Moore College. The selections you see above are ca. 1920, painted by members of the Philadelphia 10, a prominent group of woman artists who worked and exhibited together regularly. #artschool #librariesofinstagram #philadelphia #womenartists #oilpaintings
