Accessing E-Resources from Off-Campus

How do I access e-Resources off campus?

In order to do this, you must have the following:

  • Your BlueCard or student ID number
  • A Library PIN. You can obtain a 4-digit PIN number by connecting with us in person, or through the Ask Us chat service on our homepage.

What if I don't have a PIN?

Simply contact us via LibAnswer or chat with a Librarian
