UH libraries offer resources to help you find the e-books, journals and other library resources you need to be successful in your DE courses.
UH libraries allow you to connect to UH library resources electronically. The One Search feature searches the full-text contents of many library databases and the online catalog is a great place to start. The UH Library Catalog can help if you are searching for a particular book.
Library Support for DE Students is designed to provide DE students with a quick overview of how to gain access to library material as a DE student.
Have a question? Library staff is available for chat and e-mail.
UH Sugar Land has its own library, the Fort Bend County Libraries: University Branch Library, to help accommodate students who attend classes at this off-campus location.
Textbooks can be complicated, are often mandatory, can be expensive, and updated versions are constantly being published. The UH Bookstore understands all this, and works with students to offer them a choice when it comes to how they obtain their required reading material, whether it be in the bookstore, face to face, or electronically.
Need to rent textbooks? UH’s partnership with Barnes & Noble offers students the option of keeping textbooks only for as long as they are needed and also offers digital rentals. Online students also have the option to have purchases from the UH Bookstore shipped to their location.
UH Sugar Land and UHS at Cinco Ranch’s official campus bookstore is located at UH Sugar Land in Brazos Hall. The bookstore offers many services and supplies to faculty, staff, students and visitors.
Off-Campus Computer Lab
In addition to the various computer labs on campus, UH’s off-campus locations also have their own respective computer labs to ensure that all UH students have access to the material they need to succeed.
UH Online Writing Center
UH students who need help honing their writing skills can schedule an online consultation with the UH Writing Center. An Online General Writing Consultation is a web-based, real-time appointment in which a student meets with a Writing Consultant to discuss a piece of the student’s writing.
In an Online General Writing Consultation, as in an onsite, face-to-face General Writing Consultation, UH Writing Consultants work with students to develop, articulate, and organize their thoughts and ideas.
Students with disabilities should contact UH’s Center for Students with DisABILITIES to see what kind of accommodations and support services can be provided. CSD serves as liaisons between students and faculty, administrators, and community agencies to help ensure your success.
