Virtual Library Resources

UH System at Cinco Ranch students, faculty and staff can access library resources at four UH System universities without the drive. At your virtual library, you can:

• Receive journal articles full text free to your email accounts.
• Utilize online journal databases at UH System university libraries.
• Order books from your UH System universities for delivery to the UH System at Cinco Ranch.
• Access books electronically at UH System university libraries.
• Connect via the Internet to local Community College libraries.
• Receive research assistance and library help.

UH-Main, UH-Downtown, and UH-Clear Lake students can electronically search their home campus online library catalog for available books. Students automatically request items directly from the catalog and have them delivered to UHS at Cinco Ranch by selecting this option in the drop down menu. This service is free of charge for picking up and returning books to your university. Students never have to drive to the library.

UH-Victoria students can search any online catalog in the system libraries and order books through their Inter-library Loan Department at UHV. Students will need to fill out a form online with the book's information; author, title, date of publication and publisher. Go to UHV web address, or click below for your library’s website.

The library, which is open the same hours as the building has a small reference collection. UHS at Cinco Ranch also has materials placed on reserve by the university instructors.
