Remote User Services

Off Campus Database Access

Off campus access to library databases and subscriptions is available for currently enrolled students, faculty and staff* at Drew via Ezproxy. Links from the Library site ( and are automatically sent through Ezproxy for off campus users, who will be prompted to enter their current Drew User ID and password for access. If you experience difficulty connecting to a journal or database while off-campus:

  1. First check to see that you are connecting from the Library website. If you are using Scholarsearch, you may want to use the Advanced ScholarSearch link.
  2. If the problem persists, contact the library via Ask a Librarian and report the name of the database, the web page address, and what browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc) you were using, and we will address the problem.

*Off-campus access to a small subset of online resources is available for Alumni: see Resources for Alumni for a list. Note: users who are not currently enrolled in classes may need to visit the campus directly to access our databases.
