Virtual Library: Help and FAQs

How do I access library resources off-campus?
Library databases are remotely available to MSOE students and employees through the library's proxy server, EZproxy. EZproxy is set to work with MSOE's Single Sign-On (SSO) system. When you click on a protected link using a non-MSOE Internet Service Provider, you will be prompted to log into the proxy server via MSOE's SSO. For more information on off-campus access please view this page.

I am recieving an error message when trying to access databases off-campus. How can I fix this?
Clearing your browsing history, cache, and cookies can help fix these issues. Instructions for completing this are available under Web Browsers on the Off-Campus Access Guide.

How do I find electronic books?
View the e-Book Databases page or limit your search to Coll: EBOOK in the Library Catalog.

How do I find articles and other scholarly resources?
Use the Library Research Site, the A-Z Database List, or the Subject Guides to find resources for locating articles and databases.

We also recommend conducting research with Summon, a discovery service used to search multiple library resources and databases in a single search.
