Education Program - Distance Students: Off-Campus Access

Authentication Icon

Anywhere on the Library web site where you see the following icon (it looks like a lock), you will need to log into our Proxy server. This is our way of knowing you are an SMSU student and should be accessing the resource. We pay big bucks for some of the databases, and our licensing requirements only allow our students, faculty, and staff to access them.


Use your StarID login information to access library resources. StarID is used to log into our Proxy server to access databases from off-campus and to request materials via Interlibrary Loan.
