Article Databases & e-Resources

Search these databases from off-campus with a username (your last name) and password (student id number). Your student id number can be found underneath the barcode on your student id.  Do NOT use your Passport username and password. If your last name is hyphenated, type it in as one long word with no spaces and no hyphen. Only students registered for the current session will have access to the databases from off-campus.  For online help using the databases, chat with a librarian and/or check out our database tutorials.
