Off campus E-Resource Access Issues

We are having reports of some intermittent access issues with our databases and e-journals when in use off campus.  If you should encounter any issues please follow these instructions:

  1. Go to apps.ccsu.edu
  2. Log on to the server using your bluenet ID and password
  3. Choose “public applications” folder
  4. Choose “IE-LIB” from the list and start the application

From there you should be able to use the library’s resources as you normally would from on campus.

If you continue to have issues please see: http://libguides.ccsu.edu/content.php?pid=58547&sid=5497039 or email Sarah @ lawson_sae@ccsu.edu
