Off-Campus Access

Get your eID ready

If you’re a current student, faculty member or staff member, your eID is your ticket to getting to library resources off-campus. Community borrowers do not have off-campus access to online materials.

In most situations, all you will need to do is enter your eID and password when you are prompted. Once you sign in, your session will remain active until you completely exit your web browser.
