Note: All UNL Libraries locations are currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Online resources are still available!

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 either your Single Sign-On (also known as your My.UNL or Canvas login) or your My Library Account.

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

Former UNL students, staff, and faculty members, including retired faculty, can only access our databases on computers located at one of our UNL Libraries locations.

Non-UNL Users

If you are not a student/staff/faculty member at UNL, you can access our databases only from within the UNL Libraries.

  1. I am a UNL graduate and current member of the UNL alumni association - how do I get access to online use of the library? Thanks

  2. You can use the UNL Libraries' online resources on-campus, by using one of the library computers or bringing your own laptop/tablet. Only current faculty, staff, and students can use online resources off-campus, due to licensing restrictions.
