In general, only current OU students, employees, and emeriti can access databases and other electronic resources licensed to Ohio University Libraries from off campus.
Students must be enrolled in one or more specific classes or dissertation hours in the Student Information System for the current semester (or the upcoming semester during intersessions and summer). If you are being blocked from access for this reason, you can resolve the issue by enrolling in a single class or dissertation hour. If you just enrolled, it may take up to a day for library access to be granted. If your program requires you to complete a project before you are allowed to enroll in classes, contact Libraries staff.
Faculty and staff automatically get access. Temporary employees and others working in an employee capacity: please contact Libraries staff to request access.
Visiting scholars, emeriti, and OUHCOM CORE program members: please contact Libraries staff to request access.
Note: Some electronic resources may be restricted to specific Ohio University campuses. If you are attempting to access a resource that is not licensed for your campus, you may not be granted access.
