Library Basics

Rutgers-restricted Access

Rutgers-restricted Access. You should have no problem connecting to databases and electronic journals to which the Rutgers Libraries subscribe from any networked computer on campus. However, in order to use these resources from off-campus, you must log in with your Rutgers NetID. For instructions see the Libraries' How Do I Connect?

Off-Campus Access

When working from home or some other off-campus locations, you can use the "Off-Campus Access" link provided for each Rutgers-restricted resource to login with your Rutgers NetID and connect to that database or article. Use the link embedded in the citation to access these resources on campus.
