Off-Campus Access to Databases
Who may access these resources?
Library resources are available to all faculty, staff,
and currently enrolled students.
What is the process for accessing these resources?
- Go the Library's database page and select the resource that you would like to search.
- If remote authorization is required to use the resource, you will
be prompted to supply your MBC Network/e-mail User Name and
MBC Network Password. The Network Password is no longer the same as your email password. If you have questions about your user name or password, please visit the Computer Center website or contact the Computer Center at 540-887-7075.
Do I have to configure my Web
browser for remote access?
No, although you must have cookies enabled. Follow your browser's directions (check the help index)
for enabling cookies.
Firewalls at large companies may prevent access to the databases through the proxy. If you are having problems logging in at work, try using your home computer.
AOL software may also cause problems with the proxy login. Try using Internet Explorer as your web browser to access the databases.
Who do I contact if I have technical difficulties?
You may send an email to email@example.com or
contact us at 540-887-7085.
