|How do I access electronic resources from home?
Library e-resources are available to current students, faculty and staff via cable modems, dial-up and DSL. In order to access library e-resources from off-campus, you must:
The SNC Community may now access subscription library databases from off-campus through EZproxy.
- Have a current St. Norbert College network username and password.
- Have an active account with an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
- Have a current full version of browser software (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, etc.). *
EZproxy replaces, the now defunct instructions, Proxy_Server_Setup_for_Remote_Library_Database_Access, some of you may have used.
To access databases from off-campus, click links on http://www.snc.edu/library/findarticles.html,
enter your campus username and password when prompted; you will
then be directed to the appropriate database. As in the past, not all databases are
available off-campus due to license restrictions. Database links accessed through the library
catalog are not available off-campus at this time, we will continue to
work on catalog access.
If you need assistance using the databases or are having problems, contact a reference librarian at Ask a Librarian or call (920) 403-3160.
* Database vendors take advantage of capabilities found in new browser versions. Older browser versions may limit your ability to utilize searching features offered by some vendors. Since there are browser compatibility issues with some database vendors, it is also advisable to have more than one browser installed on your computer. If one browser is presenting problems, switch to the other installed browser. This will help determine if the problem is vendor related or browser related.
