Off-Campus Access to E-Resources

Off-campus access to most Library databases and e-journals is available to current Minnesota State University, Mankato students, faculty, and staff only.

Access to E-Resources from off-campus requires authentication, which is done through the Library's proxy server. Links on the Library web site are configured to do this automatically. You will be prompted to enter your campus username and password.

If you cannot access ANY E-Resources from off-campus, please check the Remote Access page for troubleshooting tips.

  • If you have any problems with your userid or password, please check the User-ID Information page.
  • As a temporary workaround for problem resources, you can try using the campus Clientless VPN Portal. Keep in mind that connecting through the proxy server is the preferred method and report any problems to the Library.   

E-Resources Availability

Most electronic resources are licensed and may only be used by current MSU students and faculty, but some e-resources on the MSU Library website are available to anyone without authentication.  Some that are freely available to everyone include:

Library Catalogs:

Free Databases:
