Library databases and other resources can be accessed from your home computer as well as from on campus. You will simply need to log in to identify yourself as a student. If you are prompted to log in, enter the same username and password that you use to connect to campus wifi.

Here's how to find that username and password:

  1. Log in to campus cruiser
  2. Click on "webadvisor" in the blue banner near the top of the page
  3. Near the bottom, in the left-hand column, you will see a link for wireless information
  4. When you click this link, you will see your unique username and password. This is also the username and password you will need to use to access library databases and tools.
