How to Login 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 Information Technology to get your account set-up properly.  Below we have included links for how to contact the ITS Help Desk if you need assistance.
