NCLIVE is a partnership of almost 200 North Carolina libraries that provides online resources free of charge to patrons of these affiliated libraries. Each participating library has its own password which changes periodically. To obtain the new UNCSA password, login here or contact the Reference Librarian.
The password is required for off-campus access to the materials available through NCLIVE which include e-books, journal and newspaper articles and encyclopedias.
PBS Videos through NCLIVE are now available through the Semans Library online catalog. Simply search by the title of the video, the keywords PBS video or the subject itself, choose the video you wish to view and click on the link for View the video (UNCSA).
The ARTstor Digital Library is now accessible to registered ARTstor users through the iPad, iPhone, and the iPod Touch, providing read-only features such as searching and browsing, zooming, and viewing saved image groups. We are also introducing the Flashcard View for ARTstor Mobile, which allows users to test their knowledge by viewing the image without textual information, and then flipping the image to reveal the image record.
