Dupré News & Events
Note: Our Reference Chat and Email services are primarily for the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The department will assist the public if the question concerns the University or some unique resource of Edith Garland Dupré Library, such as Federal government publications.
Off-Campus Access to Library Databases

When prompted, enter your ULID and password to access a database. For help with ULIDs and passwords, students, faculty, and staff should contact the University IT Service Desk.
