Library Resources for Online and Distance Students: Off-Campus Access

This guide contains library services for students participating in online and distance classes at KU.

Connecting to Electronic Resources

All enrolled students, including distance learning students, will have access to electronic resources through the KU Libraries.

In order to access KU Libraries databases, e-journals, and other e-resources from off-campus, you will need to know your KU Online ID and password.  When you first attempt to connect to a database or e-journal, you will be prompted to enter this information.

If you are unable to connect to any of our resources from off-campus, please first confirm your enrollment status by checking Enroll & Pay or by contacting the registrar's office at 785-864-4422. Once confirmed, if you continue to experience trouble connecting, please contact us using one of the Ask a Librarian options. 

See Off-campus Access to KU Libraries Databases and E-journals for more information.
