Remote Access to Library Databases and Online Resources

When connected to the campus network, including the wireless network or the campus VPN, users will automatically be able to access Web-based Library resources. CSU Stanislaus-affiliated users (currently registered students, faculty and staff members) can also take advantage of the Library's proxy service to be authenticated to access licensed (i.e. restricted) Library resources from locations away from campus. No set-up or configuring of browsers is necessary: when using a link from OneSearch or the Library’s website to access a restricted resource, the proxy service will prompt you for your MyStanState credential. For questions about access or assistance searching databases and other electronic resources, please contact the Library Research Help Desk at 209-667-6558 or the virtual chat service on the Library homepage.
