How to Login if You are Off-Campus

How Do I Access Off Campus Resources?

Whittemore Library provides access to numerous online databases for all its students and faculty.  Off-campus access requires that you login using your Blackboard username and password before being able to search the databases.  Once you login, you will be able to access all the online databases without having to enter a library barcode number or a username/password. 

Here are instructions on how to log-in when you are off campus.

If you do not know your Blackboard account, please contact the Blackboard's Customer care technicians who are available to support you 24/7 at 1-866-361-8970.
