Accessing Copley Library Resources During Your Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving Break is only a week away! Whether you are traveling for the break or staying in San Diego, you may feel like you have major work to accomplish over your holiday. Research papers, take-home tests, and lots of reading – but at least it will be according to your schedule.

How can Copley Library help you with your schoolwork when you are away from campus? Try using our many resources that are available to you online with your USDOne login. From the library homepage, you can access ejournals, databases, and search our catalog for ebooks that might help you with your work during break.

Finding ebooks

What else can you do from our website? Check out our Research Guides – these guides are often subject specific or task-related, so you can find helpful research tips on everything from Anthropology to Citing Sources. You can even search across all of our guides to see if you are missing something crucial to your work.


The library will close at 5pm on Wednesday, November 23. If you find that you just need to get to the library before classes begin again after Thanksgiving, we re-open at noon on Sunday, November 27 and return to our regular open hours until our 24-hour open building schedule begins closer to finals.

Safe travels and have a great break!
