Most of the library’s online resources, including ebooks, databases, and e-journals, are available from off-campus to current USCB students, staff, and faculty. You’ll need your student ID and your network (Blackboard) password to log in.
There are several ways to access these resources:
- From our Research Guides, by Subject
- From our Library Catalog
- Using our Off-Campus Access Bookmarklet
From our Research Guides (LibGuides), by subject:
You can view a list of topical databases and recommended journals from our Research Guides, sorted by discipline and subject. Click on any of the linked databases or resources to be redirected to our proxy login, which authenticates you as a USCB student or affiliate. Enter your network username and password (the same as your Blackboard login) to access the database or journal.
From our library catalog:
Log in to your library account before searching for materials. On the library’s catalog page, select the “Off Campus Access” option from the top right-hand corner of the screen.
- Enter your Network ID and password. This is the same password you use to access Blackboard and University email.
- Once you’re authenticated, search for databases by name (JSTOR, Academic Search Premier) or ebook titles in the catalog, and select the “Connect to…” link for the Beaufort North or Beaufort South campus.
Using the Off Campus Access Bookmarklet
Useful tool if you often work from off-campus. Have a saved link to an article or citation, but want to access it quickly without going through the library catalog first? Use one of the methods below to install the bookmarklet in your browser:
In Firefox, right-click this link and select “Bookmark This Link”:
Reload in USCB Library Proxy Server
In Safari or Chrome, drag this link to your browser toolbar:
In IE, right-click this link and select “Add to Favorites…”
Once you’ve added the bookmarklet, visit the link or address you want to view, click on the bookmarklet button, and you’ll be redirected through the proxy server. Note: If the library does not have full access to the journal or database you want to view, you may still see limited information or not have access to a full-text article. In these cases, visit TDNet to find the journal directly to see if we have full text availability; if not, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
