Access Issues? Find Help!

Accessing Online Library Resources

On and off-campus access to online library resources, such as databases and journals, is available to students, faculty, and staff. The majority of online library resources are accessible remotely (off-campus).

Use your ULID and password when you see the 'Log in to Library Resources' page. Your login will remain active across multiple databases. After one hour of non-use, the session will time out and you will be required to log in again.

View important information about Database Use.

General Troubleshooting Tips

If you are unable to access a database from on or off-campus, you can try the following. After each, try accessing the database again.

If you visit several databases or view or download a substantial amount of material from within databases in a short period of time, you may receive a browser warning.

  • This is a security precaution in place that suspends your current session and you can regain access to the databases after 2 hours.
  • If you receive this warning but believe this is not your situation, your account may have been compromised. You should reset your password.

  • Email: reference@louisiana.edu (send a screenshot with the URL address bar included)
