Off Campus Access to the University Libraries Electronic Indexes

Please turn off any old proxy configuration that you may have setup in your browser
previously.

"Authorized users” of the library databases are currently enrolled students, faculty and staff on
the University of South Carolina Columbia campus.  Those authorized users will have access to
almost all subscription electronic resources – including databases and e-journals – from any
computer, connected through any Internet Service Provider.  All that is required is a USC
Network Username (Blackboard, GEM, Novell) and a Network Password. 

 

·         If you are working from a computer that is on the USC (Columbia) campus, or are
connected to the Internet via a USC account, you will be allowed access to electronic
resources via IP recognition, i.e. no authentication is required.

·         If you are connected to the Internet through an outside service provider (AOL,
Earthlink…), you will be asked to authorize yourself with your Network Username and
password
. Refer to the proxy information page if you need to know
more about this. When you are authorized as a currently enrolled student, faculty or
staff of USC Columbia campus, you will be passed through a software package known
as EZProxy to the electronic resource, and will have full access to the subscription.
 

Logging into the Library’s Remote Access ezproxy server  

When you access one of the subscription ejournals or databases you will be stopped to “authenticate”
or login to the library’s proxy server. If you have additional questions or connection problems please
refer to the Ezproxy FAQ page or call the Library’s Systems Office at 803-777-5228 or

 

During the login process the first sceen you will encounter is below.  Click “Yes” on this screen.

 

 

 

The next screen that will appear is the one below.  Please click “Yes” on this screen also.

 

 

 

The screen below is the login screen where you will need to enter your Network Username
and your password.  If you are unsure of your USC Username login to VIP and look under the Technology tab for your Network Username and to reset your password.

 

If you have problems:

·         Make sure your browser:

    • Is set to accept cookies.
    • Has Java and Javascript enabled.
  • Ask your Internet Service Provider if you are protected by a firewall. Firewalls that block
    non-standard ports may restrict your access.
