    How do I access databases from off campus?

      If you are working off-campus and you want to access the library's e-books and databases, you need to 

      1. access the database through the library's website so the vendors know via IP authentication that you're affiliated with MSOE and therefore have permission to use it
      2. connect via the proxy server - not the VPN or MyMSOE. Instructions for this are located at http://www.msoe.edu/community/campus-life/library/page/2030/off-campus-access


      Please be aware that if you are trying to access from a place a business, there may be firewall issues.
