Troubleshooting online journals

Nearly all our electronic resources can be accessed off campus using your university username and password. However, it can sometimes be more difficult to find the correct route to login. The easiest solution is to look up the journal or database in iFind and follow the link there. This guide has screenshots showing how some of the major systems look off campus.
