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 (libguides.drew.edu and www.drew.edu/library) 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.

Remote Users Library Request (Document Delivery)

Off-campus students and faculty may request copies of Drew-owned journal articles and book chapters. To place a document delivery request, go to the request for materials scan form (will open in a new window).

Before submitting a request, please check the Drew Library Catalog to be sure that the material is available here.

Note: please allow at least 5 business days for arrival. Scans will be sent directly to the email address provided.

For any questions please contact llevinson@drew.edu or library@drew.edu.

For non-Drew owned materials, please submit an Interlibrary Loan request form from the “Interlibrary Loan” link on www.drew.edu/library. We are not accepting ILL requests for books at this time. Articles and book chapters will be requested from other libraries only if available electronically.
