Livermore Library Resources

Mary Livermore Library provides the UNC Pembroke campus with a variety of academic resources designed to facilitate scholarly research. These resources sometimes require certain skills and methods to locate the best search results. These tutorials will provide some basic information to help students and faculty get the most from these important resources. 

Welcome to the Mary Livermore Library on campus at UNC Pembroke. This video offers a short introduction to our library website and the resources and services we provide.


The Mary Livermore Library has several ways for students, faculty, and staff to contact the library for assistance and information. This video will give you a brief overview of the best ways to contact us. 

One of the best ways to locate resources through the library website is to use the filters on the A-Z Database List to narrow your search by subject and database type. This video explains several features that will help your search be more productive.


Mary Livermore Library offers access to a vast number of physical and electronic resources. However, sometimes the library doesn't buy access to that content. Instead we can borrow most books, articles, and occasionally, videos from other libraries. Typically there is no cost associated with an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request. If there is a cost, you will be notified and asked if you are willing to pay that cost before the item is ordered. This video instructs users on how to use Interlibrary Loan.

This video will review the Library of Congress Classification system, how to get information from a call number, and how to locate a book on the shelf with a call number using the library's map.

BrowZine allows users to read and keep up with current journals. With an account, you can save and organize particular journals and articles. This video provides an overview of using this resource.

If you want to select course reserves for any class that you are teaching, it is easy to make a list supported by the library through your Canvas shell. Reading List is a tool in Canvas that seamlessly integrates library materials and other resources into your classes. You can search the library's discovery tool, Primo, for items, create your own citations with full-text uploads, link to outside online resources, or use the Cite It! tool to add citation info from the web.
