Answer:

With only a few exceptions, you can access any of the OWHL's subscription databases while off campus. 

In order to do this, you must have the following:

  • Your BlueCard or student ID number
  • A Library PIN. You can obtain a 4-digit PIN number by connecting with us in person, or through the Ask Us chat service on our homepage.

When you try to use a subscription database while off campus, you will see a screen that looks like this:

Your "Library Card Number or Username" is your BlueCard number. The "Password or PIN" is that 4-digit PIN you get at the Welcome Desk. 

If you had a PIN at one time but have forgotten it, simply chat us to reset it or get a new one during regular library hours
