It is recommended to always log in through the Portal before accessing any Library resources. It's the best way to avoid any access issues you might encounter while researching.
Tip: You can favorite the A.T. Still Memorial Library tile so that it displays on your portal homepage without you having to search for it every time.
Note: If you want to login immediately or override any local settings, click on the link that says Advanced Search.
Tip: If you like to go directly journal websites, we recommend installing the Libkey Nomad browser extension. When you are viewing an article, this extension will automatically detect if the library provides access to that article, and will give you a direct link, pdf, or a link to our ILL form for articles not available through our subscriptions.
Some off-campus users will find that they cannot get into ATSU resources even when they begin their searches using Still OneSearch or even a direct link to one of our resources.
This happens when you have other access to EBSCO resources through another affiliation (typically, a hospital, govt agency employer, or other university) that is tied to your usual IP ranges or you have another Open Athens account.
To bypass this problem and access ATSU resources directly:
Start your research from the The Library's homepage.
The Library's homepage gives you access to multiple search options for its resources, each best for specific types of research. Select them from the top tabs visible on the large Still OneSearch box visible near the top of the library homepage.
This search includes the overall largest number of resources.

This search includes PubMed and its included resource MEDLINE, the premier biomedical research database in the world.
You can search PubMed freely anywhere, but if you start at the Library's site, you can include all of the full-text journals that ATSU provides.

No library will ever have everything that you might want or need. Use our free Interlibrary Loan service to request articles or other materials that you need from another library. If the Library is able to get them, it will. This service typically takes between 1-3 business days but may take up to ten days.
The Library offers interlibrary loan services using several methods.
Note: If based on the Kirksville campus, you will have access to free loans of print books from a large network of Missouri public and university libraries through the Mobius network - including a wide range of fiction. Order these and pick them up in the Library.
The Library provides free & low-cost Interlibrary Loan services to clinical preceptors.
