Off-campus access to databases

You can log into the library catalog and databases using the same login as MySCSU or the campus computers.

  1. When you click on a database from off-campus, you will be prompted for a username and password. Enter your username and password in the boxes on the left. (Note: If your username and password do not work, you can try entering your 8 digit ID number from your Hoot Loot card and a library PIN in the boxes on the right. The PIN is created by the library user and must be at least 4 characters (letters or numbers or both).
  2. Enter your Network Username and Password (MySCSU/Vista login).
  3. Be sure to pick the correct campus!
  4. Click the Submit button.
  5. Problems with your Network Login need to be directed to the IT Helpdesk.

Note: If you have recently reset your password, the new password may take some time to "migrate" to the library login. Please use the Library PIN or Remote access in the meanwhile.

If you mistype and need to try again, the campus choice will reset to Central. Be sure to choose the correct campus on each attempt.

Where are journals shelved?

All print journals are shelved in alphabetical order by title on the ground floor in the Periodicals Room. Journals on microfilm or microfiche are shelved in the Microforms Area. Scanners are available on the ground floor and first floor. You can scan to print, to send to mail, or to save to a flash drive. Scanning is free but printing costs apply. For additional help see a librarian.

Requesting articles through Interlibrary loan

If an article is not available full-text online or in print at Buley Library, you can request it through interlibrary loan. Enter your username and password to access the interlibrary loan forms. If you are a first time user of this service you will be prompted to fill out a form with your information. Once you do that select "Journal Articles" under New Request on the left hand side and fill out the details of your request. Then click submit. Most often the article will be emailed to you. If the article cannot be emailed it will be photocopied and mailed to you. You will be notified if a request cannot be fulfilled. 

There is no charge for interlibrary loan.
