Why Is It?

snowing, a real blizzard outside. The
roads are covered in snow and I can’t get out of my driveway.
Great opportunity to drink hot chocolate and work on my history
paper. All that wonderful
information at Carrier Library, citations and
full-text online, and I’m snowed in.
How can I access the databases available in Carrier Library?
Actually, it is not very difficult. The instructions for “Accessing Databases from Off-Campus” (/proxy/) appear on all of the research database web pages.
1. You need to be a currently enrolled JMU student, faculty member or staff. Your JMU electronic ID account must be activated . There is a quick test for your electronic id available from “Problems Connecting to Databases from Off-Campus” web page (/databases/faq.html)
must make a small, one-time modification to your web browser to use the
proxy server. The
instructions are available from the “Accessing Databases from
Off-Campus” web page (/proxy/).
3. You must access the databases from the “Research Databases” pages (/databases/) from Carrier Library web site. This allows the proxy server to ask you for your JMU electronic id and password, it verifies you are a student.
