Q. How do I access library resources from off-campus?
Most of the library's resources are available to DC students, faculty and staff from off-campus. The computer will want to verify that you are a registered student or staff in an OhioLink institution before it will let you access the resource.
From off campus, when you try to access a resource such as a database, you will be prompted to authenticate: select Defiance College as your institution. Then enter your name and library card number/ barcode number. Your barcode number is on your staff/student ID card (notice that this is simply 80 + your ID number).
You should then have 2 hours to access the database. If it logs you out after two hours, just re-authenticate.
