The Library in Five Minutes: Off-Campus Access and More

Off-Campus Access

Important information for accessing databases from off-campus:

To use any of our research databases from off-campus, simply click on the database name. One of two things will happen:

  • You will be taken directly to the database if the database is freely accessible to anyone, OR . . .
  • You will be asked to enter your last name (first and last name will NOT work) and the barcode number (all 14 digits) from your Bluffton ID card in order to authenticate/login as a valid Bluffton user. After logging in, you will be taken to your chosen database.

Journal Finder

Journal Finder – use this when looking for electronic access to a particular journal. You can find the link for the Journal Finder on the library’s homepage.
