Online students have access to all of Sage Libraries’ collections, including 150,000 ebooks and nearly 80,000 periodicals. Students may access all databases and electronic resources from on- or off-campus, by logging in with their Sage username and password when prompted by the web site.

To request a print book from the collection, please fill out an Interlibrary Loan form with your mailing address. The materials will be sent at no charge to you.

To view and read electronic journal articles that Sage owns, use QuickSearch or search our journals and databases to find the article title, then simply click on the links provided in the entry (e.g. “full text online”, “pdf”, “download pdf”, etc.).

To read articles from our paper journals, submit a document delivery request by filling out an Interlibrary Loan form.  The paper journal article will be scanned and sent to you electronically via your Interlibrary Loan account.


All members of the Sage community have access to the RefWorks citation manager through the Libraries’ web site.
