Q. How do I connect to library databases from home?


In order to connect to our subscription databases and journals when away from campus you must authenticate via our proxy server. Database links on our website have the proxy syntax embedded in the link so that you will be prompted to authenticate with either your USDOne login or library barcode. If you go directly to a database (e.g., via Google) you will not be recognized as coming from USD.

You are offered two options to authenticate into the system:

1) USDOne login: username and password, or

2) Library Account login: Your last name and 14-digit barcode (begins with 2507). Click visiting scholar link.

The following screen appears when you are logging into electronic databases from off campus.


If you have trouble connecting please contact us for assistance.
