Off-Campus Access

Off-Campus Access to Resources

Current students, faculty, and staff may access most* of the Library's databases, journals, and eBooks from off-campus.

  1. Make sure to start your search from the library's website or a research guide opposed to going directly via Google or web address.

  2. If you select a resource that requires authentication, you will see a login screen asking for your Kalamazoo College username and password. This will tell our vendor you're part of the K community and should be granted access.

  3. Once authenticated you should be forwarded to the resource and granted access just as if you were "on-campus."
