Feel Like Driving?

 

Because of a mutual sharing agreement, Lyon College students can borrow books at other College and University libraries in this state.  Browse ArkLink's Libraries to see if there's something you can use within driving distance.  Pick up a library card at our front desk before you go.  You cannot login to their article databases from off-campus but most have a guest policy allowing you to search their databases in-house.

How Do I Login?

When off-campus, Lyon College faculty, staff, and students please use your Lyon user ID of: first.last@lyon.edu and your password to login.  You no longer have to use RDS to log in.  Find your browser, your web page, your database, search the database, and when the authentication screen pops up, use your student ID and password.  You only have to do this once a session.

Community members who have purchased a card can use the databases in the library building but not remotely.

Having issues logging in?  Clear your cache (CTRL + SHIFT + DEL) and try again.

If you have problems accessing the databases please call Lyon support at:  870-307-7555 or contact support@lyon.edu.
