Answer

To access our electronic resources from off campus, you must be a current Edgewood student, faculty, or staff.

Click on the resource you want to access

When you do this from off campus (or from Edgewood's wireless network), a logon screen will appear.

In the first box, enter your name, first name followed by last name (use the name that is on your Edgewood ID card, no nick-names.)

In the second box, enter your Edgewood ID number (also found on your Edgewood ID card). Your ID number must be nine digits including the leading zeros.

This is what the logon screen looks like

Off campus logon example

You will need an up-to-date browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, etc.

Your browser must also be set to allow cookies. 

In most browsers you will find that option in the privacy settings.

Still having trouble?

Are you able to log on to Your Library Account?  That shows you what you have checked out from the library.  It's also the same system we use to authenticate off-campus database users.  Try signing on to that, and then accessing the database you want.

    Chat is available during most library hours, but we may be busy! If you don't get a response right away we're probably helping someone else.
