Search our Resources

Welcome to Hackelmeier Memorial Library's Guide to Library Resources. Use this resource page for information on numerous topics related to library sources and services available to the Marian University community. Search below for full-text, electronic articles and physical items we have in the library.

Placing Holds

From the library discovery catalog above, perform a search and click the Place Hold button for physical items within other PALNI libraries. All that is required is to sign in with your MU credentials. Once an item is delivered and ready for pick-up, an automatic confirmation email will be sent. Try it out with our self-paced guide

Doesn't this sound like Interlibrary Loan? Yes, it is similar but this service, called PALShare, is another way to get items delivered slightly faster than ILL. Here's a chart breaking down the difference between the two services.


Looking for Databases? Search our list of discipline specific databases for content within your academic area.


If you're looking for specific e-journals, try our A-Z list as well as that available on our Browzine platform. You'll be able to find what titles we have, which databases they're located within, and the date-specific coverage of those titles.

My Library Account

To see due dates, renew, or check fines of what items one has on their library account, click the My Library Account link at the top right of the catalog and add your Marian University login credentials. 

Guide on the Side

In addition to our subject guides, we've created some web-based tutorials for specific resources. These tutorials are browser-based, allowing for self-pacing and active learning of content. Not restricted to library resources, they can be used by faculty for retention and comprehension of course information. Guides include:

  • Library Catalog searching tips and strategies
  • Creating Holds (PALShare)
  • Searching Google scholar
  • Specific database familiarity
  • Using the EndNote citation manager
  • Accessing one's Library Account
  • Accessing library e-books

More tutorials are being developed to our platform, so check back frequently. Feel free to contact a librarian with any questions or comments.
