Accessing Online Library Resources
On and off-campus access to online library resources, such as databases and journals, is available to students, faculty, and staff. The majority of online library resources are accessible remotely (off-campus).
Use your ULID and password when you see the 'Log in to Library Resources' page. Your login will remain active across multiple databases. After one hour of non-use, the session will time out and you will be required to log in again.
Visitors can access online library resources within Dupré Library. Remote (off-campus) access is not allowed. View the Use of Electronic Resources by Visitors for more information.
