How to Access the Library Databases if You are Off-Campus
FSU's Whittemore Library requires that users who are off-campus authenticate through Blackboard. Blackboard accounts are set up through Blackboard, not the library, so while we will help as much as possible to get you onto our databases from off-campus, sometimes we may have to refer you back to Blackboard or Information Technology to get your account set-up properly. Below we have included links for how to format the username/password to get onto the library databases as well as IT Services information.
