Library 101: Off Campus Access

How to Access Subscription Databases from Off Campus

If you are off campus, navigate to database resources exactly as if you were on campus. When you attempt to enter either a restricted area or a subscription database, you will be asked to authenticate. Here's what you do:

  • Where prompted, enter your username and password as you would to login in for email or into canvas
  • Click the "Submit " button. That's it! At this point, you will be taken to the chosen resource.
  • Once authenticated, you will be able to access any of the databases or ereserves remotely.
  • So long as you are actively using the resource(s), you will not be prompted to reauthenticate, even if you switch databases. If idle, the system eventually times out after about 20 minutes or so.

Problems connecting? If you receive strange errors or the system persistently hangs, follow the instructions in the left hand box titled "Off Campus Solution!" on this page.

Here is a sample of what the authentication page looks like.

Note: The authentication method was updated in January 2017 to username/password instead of a 14 digit barcode.
