Off Campus Access

The library provides a variety of licensed databases. The license permits the databases to be used only by current Faculty, Staff and Students of the Ohio Northern University. The license permits unrestricted access to library patrons who access databases using computers connected to the Ohio Northern University's network (ONUNET). This includes computers in academic buildings, residence halls, computer labs etc.

Library patrons using computers or mobile devices connected to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) such as Wcoil (off-campus patrons) may access licensed databases. However, such patrons are required to authenticate themselves as valid patrons of the library, before accessing the databases.

Off-campus patron should select the off-campus link to a database. The system prompts for the user name and University ID Number. If the user name and the ID number supplied by the patron are authenticated, the databases are available for use.

When prompted for user name type your first name and the last name.

The University ID number = the number that is printed on the front of the ID and begins with 000
