Welcome to Lindell Library!
Explore this guide to learn about the library and getting started with research. Key points to remember:
- The library is both a physical and online space.
Some research articles, ebooks, audio, and video can only be accessed online (from within the library or anywhere with an internet connection), while many items are available only in physical format in the library (many of which you can check out). It's vital to use both.
- Start your research early.
If we don't have a book or article you need, you can order it for free from another library. Your item can take a couple of days up to a week or more to arrive, so start your research early to ensure you get the items you need.
This will reduce the stress of last-minute scrambling and help you avoid plagiarism—whether intentional cheating or simply being rushed or careless with citations. Accidental plagiarism is still plagiarism!
- Need help? Ask!
If you get stuck with finding research, writing a paper, or even saving a file, don’t hesitate to ask our expert librarians and staff for help.
To use many online library services, you need the correct logins: your barcode and your AugNet account.
- Activate your barcode
Your barcode is the 14-digit number on the back of your Augsburg ID card. It’s used to get online reserve articles and to log in to your library account (My Account) to see what you have checked out, to renew and order books, and more. Before you can use it, you must get it activated with the library. Do this in person at the Circulation Desk or give us a call: 612-330-1017.
