How do I log in to view material from off-campus?

You do not need to actively "log in" to any account or other website before accessing materials via the library website. If one of our resource requires a login, it will automatically prompt you using the same login screen you'd see for any other FSU service like webmail or MyFSU. Use your FSUID and password to login. Please note, that the FSU VPN is not required or recommended for accessing library resources off-campus.

My FSUID or password doesn't work for eResources off-campus access (databases, journals, etc).

Due to licensing restrictions by our database vendors, we are unable to provide off-campus access to non-FSU patrons. If you are not currently enrolled in classes for the current semester (semesters are Fall, Spring, and Summer), retired Faculty, or are not actively employed by Florida State University, you will be unable to access these resources from off-campus. Access begins the first day of classes for each semester. If you are a currently active student or staff and your FSUID and password still does not work, please fill out the form below.
