How to log in to the duPont Library databases from off campus

To access the library's online resources from any off-campus location with Internet access, follow these simple instructions:
1. Start here (the library's web site):
2. Go to the "Electronic Databases" portion of the site; then choose the specific resource you wish to use.
3. If you are not on campus, you will be prompted for a user name and password before you can use the resource.

user name: Your first and last names (include a space between them)
password: Your University ID barcode number (example: 2B00200000)

It is very important to note that our licenses with the database providers generally do not allow persons who are not affiliated with the University to have access to the resources outside of the library. Therefore, please do not redistribute your name and password information.

Finally, there is a very small number of resources for which the above logon instructions will not work. Should you encounter one of them, or experience any other difficulties with remote access to our online resources, please do not hesitate to contact us at or phone 931-598-1368.
