Accessing Library Resources Off-Campus

The CSC Library subscribes to a variety of article and book databases to facilitate campus research. When students, faculty, and staff are on campus and using the local area network (LAN), they need only to go to the Library Learning Common's website -- -- to gain access to these resources.

To access an eBook owned by the CSC Library, go to Search Library Catalog, on the library's main webpage. When the library catalog opens, click on Favorites List in the upper right. Then select "CSC eBooks we own".

However, when students, faculty, and staff are off campus, they are no longer on the LAN. This means that an additional step is required to gain access. Because databases are limited to students, faculty, and staff, it is necessary to enter CSC credentials to access these resources from off-campus

As part of the application process, Information Technology (IT) sends a set of two usernames and passwords to new students. These usernames and passwords provide access to various campus resources, including:

Username looks like – 99999999 (8 digit ID)
Used for – Course enrollment, Accessing grades & transcripts, Billing/payment status
Username looks like – john.student OR jostud
Used for – EagleMail, CSC Online/Sakai, library databases,  device registration, on campus computers login

When you try to access library resources (ebooks, article databases, etc.) from off campus, you will see a login prompt (example below). To access the library resources, enter your campus username and password.
