Off-Campus Access to Library’s E-Resources

When off-campus, Vol State students, faculty and staff can access databases and ebooks.  On the Resources web page, click on the material you want to search.  Enter your Vol State username, such as jasmith, and your Vol State password when requested.  This is the same username and password you enter to log into a computer in the Library or a computer lab.

Happy Searching!
