Frequently Asked Questions

What employee categories can access Libraries online resources from off-campus?


Access to online resources from off campus are restricted by the licenses we sign with the vendor or publisher, and we cannot offer fee-based access or individual exceptions. Instead, access is determined by a person's category in the University's PeopleSoft database. The University Libraries has no control over a person's classification; only the department's human resources personnel can make changes.

Here are the PeopleSoft categories that come with Library Flags for off-site privileges. Note that Sponsored Accounts are specifically excluded.
