Accessing Databases from Off Campus
You can access any of the databases that the library subscribes to from most places that you have an internet connection, but there is one extra step you must take to do so if you are not connected to the on-campus network.
Navigate to the database or resource you want to use through the library's website. After clicking the link, you will be asked to provide a username and password. Simply enter your NetID and password to log in through our proxy server and access subscription databases from off campus. Note that many workplaces employ firewalls that will prevent access.
Note: You will have a separate username and password for Lexis+, Westlaw, Bloomberg Law, and CALI.
