Receiving Materials

 

The Staff of Forsyth Library would like to welcome you to the FHSU family.  Forsyth Library maintains a Virtual Services department for Fort Hays State University virtual college students.  If you are enrolled in courses through the FHSU Virtual College, you can receive services to support your studies.**  We are happy to assist you in any way we can.  Once you have set up <Off Campus Access> (see below), you have access to the same materials as students on campus.

This includes:

  • Personal assistance by phone or email (785.628.4434 / refserv@fhsu.edu). This includes  limited research and literature searches with approval of your professor.  We can “walk you through” searching the databases or online catalog.
  • Online Catalog is a list of all books, periodical titles, government documents, videos, and CD’s owned by Forsyth library.  You can also search for articles within some of our online databases.
  • Online Databases containing articles or article citations on virtually every topic, from journals, newspapers, and magazines, most of which are not freely available on the web.
  • Full-text electronic books which can be read online
  • Research Subject Guides contain the best databases, journals, reference books, citation guides and more, tailored to a specific subject or discipline
  • Off Campus Access to most Forsyth Library electronic resources is restricted to authorized users (FHSU faculty, students, staff).  If you are off-campus and select a restricted resource you will be directed to the FHSU Secure Authorization page.  Enter you TigerTracks username and password.  That’s it.  You are authenticated!  If you are already logged-in to TigerTracks or Blackboard you are already authenticated.

**There may be fees attached to some of these services.  Please see “Receiving Materials” for information on these fees.  When requesting books, you will need to fill out a “Statement of Responsibility” form. 

If you have any questions about accessing or using library resources, please contact Reference at 785.628.4434 or at refserv@fhsu.edu.
