Why Do I Need to Log In to Access the Library's Resources Off Campus?
Due to license agreements, the Library's databases, eBooks, streaming films, and other electronic resources are only available off campus to current students, faculty, and staff. The Library uses a proxy server to identify authorized off-campus users.
How Does Off-Campus Access Work?
You only have to log in once in a two-hour period. Once you log in, you can access any of the library's electronic resources as if you were on campus.

Have a link to a library electronic resource and want to ensure it works both on and off campus? Use our Proxy Link Generator! It will add the proxy server's referring URL (https://libproxy.uccs.edu/login?url=) to the beginning of a link, ensuring off-campus access works correctly.

A handful of database vendors require links to be generated within the database. Cutting and pasting the URL from the address bar won't work. These vendors include:
