The University of Kansas Libraries
Off-campus Access to KU Library Databases and E-journals
Who can access resources from off-campus?
Off-campus access to electronic resources is available to all enrolled students, faculty, staff, and authorized affiliates of the University of Kansas. Others may use library databases and e-journals from any KU Libraries location.
- If you are a student and do not have off-campus access, but think you may be eligible, please confirm your enrollment status by checking Enroll & Pay or by contacting the registrar's office at 785-864-4422.
- If you are employed by the university and do not have access, please confirm your current employment status with your department or with KU Human Resources.
- If you believe you are eligible through some other connection to the university, please review the university’s official policy on affiliates. KU Human Resources provides a form for requesting affiliate status with KU. Human Resources also has a comprehensive list of affiliations detailing eligibility for campus privileges including off-campus access to licensed databases and e-journals noted as part of the "Libraries Full" service designation.
All users are expected to comply with the University's policy on Acceptable Use of Electronic Information Resources.
What do I need to connect from off-campus?
From off-campus or from the residence halls, scholarship halls, and on-campus apartments, you will need your KU Online ID and password to connect to most databases and e-journals. See the Terms & Conditions for information on appropriate uses of electronic resources at KU. Please contact Ask a Librarian with questions.
