Off-Campus Access to Library Databases
Most of the databases can be accessed from off-campus. If prompted, enter a UCS CLID and password to access a database. To obtain a UCS CLID and password, faculty, staff, and students may visit the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Help Desk.
Having trouble accessing library databases from off-campus?
If you are unable to access the library databases remotely, please call the Reference Desk at (337) 482-6030. When the library is closed and multiple databases from different providers (for example, JSTOR and Academic Search Complete) are unavailable from off campus, the University's Help Desk may be able to help you. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or (337) 482-5516.
In addition, you may try the following steps:
- Clear cookies and cache
- Try using the Chrome browser. Firefox has known issues with remote access
- Make sure you are not using old bookmarks that lead to legacy library web pages whose URLs no longer function
- Try opening a new window
- Try rebooting your computer
- Try using another device, if possible

About Edith Garland Dupré Library
Edith Garland Dupré Library is centrally situated on the main campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette at 400 E. St. Mary Blvd. The library is open to students, faculty, staff, and the public. Dupré Library recently added its one millionth bound volume (The Nature of Things at Lake Martin: Exploring the Wonder of Cypress Island Preserve in Southern Louisiana by Nancy Camel).
Special collections include: U.S. government documents, Louisiana government documents, materials pertaining to the history and culture of Acadiana (in the Jefferson Caffery Louisiana Room), the University Archives and Acadiana Manuscripts Collection and the Rare Book Collection. Funds from a BORSF grant received in 2003 have been used to establish the Cajun and Creole Music Collection, a collection of commercial recordings of Cajun, Creole, zydeco and swamp pop music. The CCMC shares a space on the third floor with the Ernest J. Gaines Center, an international center of scholarship on the author Ernest J. Gaines and his works.
Most of the library's collections are available online through the library's catalog. Patrons may access the catalog over the Internet from home, office, or campus. Educational materials housed in the Instructional Materials Center may be searched separately or in conjunction with a search of Dupré Library's holdings.
The librarians at Edith Garland Dupré Library are eager to help prepare students by providing them with the resources they need for their education.
