Reynolds Libraries provides off-campus access to database collections that include full-text journal, magazine, and newspaper articles as well as eBooks, audiobooks and streaming videos. The guide below outlines the two main ways that you can acquire access to library resources from off campus.
For general tips about finding full text articles and search strategies, please visit our Research @ Reynolds Guide. If you have any difficulty accessing a resource off campus, don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know!
Retrieving an article from the catalog
1. Conduct search in catalog
Conduct a catalog search and select an article from the results list by clicking on “Full text available” or the article title itself. Tip: you can limit your search to full text articles only by checking the “Full Text Online” box on the right hand side of the page.
2. Click on database link
On the next page, click on the database link to access the article. Note: Sometimes the article is contained in multiple databases. If for some reason you have difficulty accessing an article in a particular database, try a different one when applicable.
4. Retrieve article
You will now be taken to the full text article. Note: In some databases you may need to click on the .pdf version in order to access the full article. Until you close your browser or logout, you should now be able to continue to retrieve library resources without having to reenter credentials.
Accessing a database directly from the A-Z list
1. Access Databases page
From any library webpage, click on the “Databases” link found under the Research menu option, or just click here.
2. Select a database
When the A-Z Databases screen appears, you can browse for databases by Subject/Discipline, or if you know the database name, select the letter of the alphabet that the database name begins with. Once located, click on the database name.
4. Search database
Conduct a search in the database.
