Remote Database Access

Database Access: ALL of our databases are available remotely, as long as you access them via the library's homepage through the "Electronic Resources" list, or directly through a class guide.

  • Once you click on the database title of choice - such as JSTOR - while off-campus, you will be prompted to log-in on the same single sign-on screen you use to log into Moodle, email, BereaBox, etc. 



  • Once you log-in, you will then be prompted to authenticate via DUO.


  • Upon authenticating via Duo, you will be inside the database where you will be able to search as normal.
