Accessing Resources from Off Campus

The Library owns or licenses thousands of electronic databases, journals, and other online resources. If you are a current student, faculty, or staff member of The Claremont Colleges you may access most of these resources from off campus.

In order to access resources from off campus, the best place to start is from the library homepage. Note: If you have trouble connecting from a bookmarked URL, try connecting from the Library web site.

Here's how

  1. Begin by finding the resource you want to access from a list on our web site.
  2. A window will open and you will be prompted to select your institution and login with your campus credentials. These are the same username and password you use to login to Sakai, Canvas, etc.

Once you have logged in the first time, you should not have to login again unless you close your browser. If you are already logged in to another system from your campus, you may not even see this prompt!

Note that a few resources are not available off campus and a few others require a second login and password for access. If you have problems connecting to a resource from off campus, ask for reference assistance in person or using instant messaging or email.
