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 (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 databases or resource names to be redirected to a login page. 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.
