Undergraduate Evening Studies Library Guide: The Basics

Accessing Databases Off-Campus

To access most of our databases when you are off-campus, you will need to login through the proxy server. When you click the database link from one of the library's web pages, you will be prompted for a login and password. Use the same one you use to login to the network when you are on campus.

Note: Please don't Google the database name to get to it. Google won't take you to the proxied link and you won't get our full access. The surest way to access the library databases is directly from the library's website.

Off-campus access to electronic library resources such as databases, ebooks and  journals from off-campus is limited to current students, faculty, and staff.

Ask a Librarian!
