Using Library Materials Off-Campus
Many library resources are available remotely from your home computer. You can directly access the catalog or website from any computer or mobile device. Some resources, however, are available only to Athenaeum students and require identification for access.
In using Maly resources from home or other off-site computers, you may be asked to prove that you hold an Athenaeum library card, that is, to authenticate your access privileges.
Follow these steps to authenticate:
- Upon linking to a database where authentication is required an authentication screen will appear requesting selection of your affiliated institution. From the drop-down box select Athenaeum of Ohio and click on the Submit button.
- On the next screen enter your last name in the first box and the barcode from your library card in the second box and click on the Submit button.
- Logins last for a period of two hours or until you log off your computer. It is possible to log in additional times and once logged in it is not necessary to log in again during your session when you change databases.
If you encounter problems accessing databases and e-resources, or have questions about the authentication process, the Remote Authentication Help Page has a series of FAQs that may help.
