Many of the sources in our databases are available online in full text. To log in to the databases from off-campus, simply enter your username (CWID) and PIN (birth date in MMYY format) when prompted. The log in screen typically looks like this:
Here is a video showing what logging in from off campus looks like:
For some accounts, you must create an account while on campus (residence halls not
included). If you can not come to campus, we can create accounts for you. These include:

In April 2013 the Library got a new EZproxy server to improve off-campus access and
fix some problems with EBSCO: EBSCO Folder accounts created on campus wouldn't work
off-campus or vice versa. Now new folder accounts will work both on and off campus.
What if you made a folder account off-campus before then and can't access it? There are two ways to get your citations out.
The old off-campus EBSCO link and the new one lead to 2 different versions of EBSCOhost (which is why you can't reach your old account on or off campus). The easy way to tell the difference is to look at the upper right-hand corner when you are in EBSCO. If you see ULM's logo, that is correct. If you only see a LOUIS logo, that is the old link.
If you just want to get the citations but don't want a new folder account at this time, you can use the "Email," "Save as File," and "Export" option to save them somewhere else. Use the old "LOUIS" link to EBSCO and log into your account from off-campus (won't work on campus) to access your folder:
