Off-Campus Access: Home

Getting resources when you are not on campus.

You don't have to come into the library building.  Almost all our journal articles, thousands of books, and many other resources, are available from off-campus.

Off-campus resources

  • Consider what kind of information you need -- check the assignment, or consult with your professor
  • Find basic information on all topics in our reference databases.
  • Find more information in our other databases.  Check by subject or look at the complete list.

Asking for help

We are ready to help you whenever you need it!

Logging in

  • Resources on the library web page work fine from on campus
  • Many require a login for off-campus use. This works automatically with our proxy server.
  • Use your Portal username and password.  You will also need to input a code received by text or email from the proxy server.
  • Or log in directly at, then pick the database you need.
  • Publisher and database login pages will not recognize your Portal username and password.  Ask a librarian for help.
  • Full Text Finder tells you which databases have particular journals in full text.
