Accessing Databases and Library System

A guide to help you connect to library resources when you're off-campus.
You will be asked to log-in to our system as you go about doing your research, both on-campus and off-campus. Whether you're using our catalog system, or trying to access a database, use your existing network login and password.

On-Campus Log In

With the library's new (August 2017) system, users will be prompted to log in, even while on campus, anytime a licensed database link is clicked. (This is a change from how the old system worked.) It's easy! Just use your Loras network login and password to log-in. 

If you encounter problems, email Kristen Smith. Include the name of the database you're trying to link to in the message.
