Who can access these resources from off campus?

  • Anyone currently enrolled at or employed by Baylor University.
  • Students who are enrolled in a spring semester and are also enrolled for the following fall semester may have access to these resources during the summer in between those 2 semesters.
  • Graduate students who are not taking classes and are not registered for dissertation or thesis hours cannot have access.
  • Alumni and Friends to Baylor University cannot have access to these resources.
  • OneSearch can be used by anyone, but almost all full text content found via OneSearch will have restricted use.


What's the best way to access these resources from off campus?

  • Obtain authenticated access to the libraries' electronic resources in one of two ways:
    • Click the "Off Campus? Log in to access full text and more content." link that displays in a black bar at the top of OneSearch when using OneSearch from off campus; or
    • Use the "Databases" link found under the "Research" menu option available throughout the main Libraries' web site
  • When you click on the appropriate link, you will be prompted for your Bear ID and password (firstname_lastname and password). You may also have to use Duo Two-factor Authentication.
  • Once authenticated, you should have access to the resource.  As long as you do not close your browser, you should not have to re-authenticate when you access other resources requiring Bear ID authentication.


How can I place links to specific resources within Canvas?

  • For off-campus authentication, preface each URL with the proxy URL:
  • To obtain the URL for the resource, place the mouse pointer over the link, right click, and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location" from the pop-up menu. If you are using a Macintosh, place the mouse pointer over the link, click and hold down, and select "Copy Link to Clipboard" from the pop-up menu.
  • For example, a complete link to the JSTOR collection would look like:
