The UNL Libraries restrict access to many databases from off-campus due to the database vendors' contract stipulations.

UNL Students, Staff, Faculty

If you are a student, staff, or faculty member at UNL, you can access databases from off-campus as long as you are logged into your My Library Account.

  • If you have not used your My Library Account before, you will need to create one.
  • My Library Account is separate from your email/Canvas login.
  • You will need to log in to your My Library Account even if you are using the UNL VPN.

If you are unable to access the databases from off-campus even when logged in, contact ASKus at 402-472-9568 and they will check to make sure your account is authorized to access the databases.

Non-UNL Members

If you are not a student/staff/faculty member at UNL, you can access our databases only from within the UNL Libraries--you will need to get a community user card.

  • This card is FREE if you are looking to only use the computers.
  • You will need to pay a fee in order to check out books.
