Reynolds Libraries provides off-campus access to database collections that include full-text journal, magazine, and newspaper articles as well as eBooks, audiobooks and streaming videos. The guide below outlines the two main ways that you can acquire access to library resources from off campus.
For general tips about finding full text articles and search strategies, please visit our Research @ Reynolds Guide. If you have any difficulty accessing a resource off campus, don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know!
Retrieving an article from the library catalog
1. Conduct a search in the library catalog:
Conduct a catalog search. Then select an article from the results list by clicking on Full text available or the article title.
Tip: You can limit your search to full text articles only by selecting Full Text Online from the Availability menu on the right side of the results page.
2. Click on the database link:
On the next page, click on the database link to access the article.
Note: Sometimes the article is contained in multiple databases. If for some reason you have difficulty accessing an article in a particular database, try a different one when applicable.
4. Retrieve the article:
You will now be taken to the full text article.
Note: For some databases you may need to click on the PDF link in order to access the full article. Until you close your browser or logout, you should now be able to continue to retrieve library resources without having to reenter credentials.
Accessing a database directly from the A-Z list
1. Access the A-Z Databases list:
From any Reynolds Libraries webpage, click on the A-Z Databases link found under the Research menu or just click here.

4. Search the database:
Conduct a search in the database.
