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 or in Passport (under Demographics).  Do NOT use your Passport username and password to access the Library databases. Only students registered for the current session will have access to the databases from off-campus. Trouble-shooting Tips: If your have multiple words in your last name, type them in as one word without a space between them.  If the page won’t load, try deleting your browser history or switching browsers. For further online help using the databases, chat with a librarian and/or check out our database tutorials.
