Library and Information Resources Network (LIRN)
Ezra University Library offers Students & Faculty the LIRN online databases allowing each library patron to have access to a variety of e-books, full-text articles, and periodical publications, journals, and newspapers. LIRN is available 24/7 though internet access, allowing students and faculty access according to their schedule.
Please have your LIRN ACCESS CODE at the library desk and log into the LIRN directly as follows:
Through the LIRN online collections, students and faculty have access to database vendors such as ProQuest, GALE, and EBSCOhost. Each vendor has numerous databases that can be searched by Subject or search individual databases like the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) for reference information. Ezra University researchers can search for reference materials such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, and almanacs as well as full-text articles from journals, newspapers and magazines across multidisciplinary subjects.
To access LIRN, go to the LIRN homepage at https://www.lirn.net and select the “Databases” button or go directly to https://www.lirn.net/databases; Enter your LIRN ID when prompted. Once you have logged in, the resources will appear on the LIRN Gateway Menu. Note that on the LIRN Gateway Menu, there is a search box that allows you to directly query across vendors using our federated search service, LIRNSearch. The default view for you is the Subject view. You can change this view during your current session by clicking on one of the other tabs (alphabetical, simple, vendor).
Our Librarian staff have composed a YouTube Video that you might find useful. This can be found on the LIRNotes channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nl7tjhNMyFo).
